Bring hither the pink and purple columbine,
With gillyflowers: Bring coronation, and sops in wine,
Worn of paramours. Strew me the ground with daffadowndillies,
And cowslips, and kingcups, and loved lilies.

~Edmund Spenser
The Shepherd's Calendar

These are the columbines that are growing in a big pot on our back deck.

Last summer, my friend MaryFran bought them for me, and they were just in a small pot and they didn't flower at all, but for two blooms.  I kind of thought it was just going to die, but I left it in the pot over the winter and this spring it has EXPLODED in blooms and quadrupled in size. 

I love it.
