Gorgeous pics! What are the bright red spikes to the right of the bottom picture...looking a little like bright red lupines or knipofa?

ProfessorRoush said...

Sorry, that should have been to the LEFT of the bottom picture

Marsha said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS! You have beautiful blossoms and a breathtaking vista for a view.

Yep, Kniphofia Red Hot Pokers. I thought they all died and I was broken-hearted but a drift of them in the rock garden decided to make a comeback. :D

Kate/High Altitude Gardening said...

What a beautiful vista in the last photo.

Rose said...

What gorgeous columbines you have, Kate! The last photo says it all--I'm glad summer has finally arrived for you. I'm loving the summertime blooms here, too, but not so much the heat:)

Lucy said...

Gorgeos photos!

Marguerite said...

Glad to hear that long cold spring has passed. We too are finally into summer and it's glorious. Your pinkish columbine are beautiful. I wonder if the colour is from cross pollination? I haven't seen one quite like it before.

Drool, drool, drool. I have a few of your jewels, but not the magnitude. You really have a lovely garden, even if it did take a little longer this year to show its best!

Melanie said...

How pretty. I love that last photo. It looks nice and hot there. I'm jealous, cold and rainy here.
