      It’s amazing to think how we can communicate so far from each other! When I lived overseas, it took at least a week for a letter to come, now it’s all so instant! Fantastic. I shall continue showing the progress and the final portraits when they’re done, and a few garden photos thrown in too.

      Maggie, you are right, they’re called Columbine here too. Aquilegia is their botanical name.
      Do you find that plant names are changing in Canada? Here, what was geranium is now pelargonium.

        It’s been a while since I’ve been to a greenhouse, but my sense is that most plants are sold by the common name rather than the Latin. Though if you speak with anyone from a gardening club, that’s a different matter.
