Aquilegia.

Aquilegia ( columbine) is a genus of about 60-70 species of perennial plants . The name Aquilegia is derived from the Latin word for eagle (aquila), because the shape of the flower petals which resemble an eagle’s claw. It blooms in a variety of colors during spring; this beautiful purple variety is my favorite..    .   .   Photo © Daniela Serra – All Rights Reserved
