Red Flower Photo: Fan Columbine, 'McKana Group'

Red Columbine Flower Photo by Aquariann

I drew the columbine art I use as my Flower Friday button before I ever met anything in the Aquilegia genus. I picked the reference photo through a Google search simply because the flower had the color combination needed for a sketch challenge. Now, five years later, I've captured plenty of columbines with my own camera, should I ever want to draw one again. These pretty petals are part of the McKana Group at Longwood Gardens.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Floral Friday Fotos and Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Flower Friday


  1. Oh that is a beautiful flower combination. So which did you draw, the meme logo? Great!

  2. We don't have those growing here that i've seen, they are lovely!

  3. Just as lovely as can be=)!!...I've never met one in person (yet), but I'm delighted to make the acquaintance of your gorgeous specimen=)!!

  6. The red is so pretty! I like the close ups of flowers that you take.

  7. Columbine really are pretty. But they self-seed way too readily for me. They almost took over my front bed a couple years ago

    1. Thanks for checking in on me, NC Sue! We're moving into a historic home so my free time has been extremely limited. It might be until after summer when I'm able to blog regularly again, but I did finally post a linky this week at
