You Know You’re a Gardener… (#9 Quiz)

You know you’re a gardener when… you take a “How much of a gardener are you?” quiz.

Your gardening self-score is 79%.


This is a pretty serious passion for you, isn’t it? You’re out there, digging, amending, turning the compost, killing the bugs or even encouraging the beneficial insects. When you can’t be outside because of weather, you’re inside studying, diagramming, building, planning. You get everything out of your garden that you put into it, and probably soon you’ll be scoring even higher on this quiz.

Aquilegia flabellata ‘Nana Alba’?

Aquilegia flabellata 'Nana Alba'?

I am so excited to see that one of my four surviving Columbines planted from seeds is just beginning to bloom… I’m doubly excite to see that it may be Aquilegia flabellata ‘Nana Alba’ which I have wanted for some time now.

The seeds were sent to me by fellow LiveJournal/Flickr user, lblanchard/lb_philly… Thank you so much Laura… They were difficult to germinate, but a few did. When they were big enough to transplant, all the ink on the tags faded and I couldn’t read them, so I didn’t know what varieties I had. I basically have to wait until they flowered.

I’ll keep checking this plant until the flower open, so I can snap a photo of it :)
