Did you know that the pretty little aquilegia that spreads itself very prettily and rapidly is otherwise known as 'Granny's Bonnet'?
And the name 'aquilegia' is derived from the Latin word aquila, which means eagle!
Anyway what on earth brings me on to this today?
It's because it has been so hot indoors today sitting at the computer editing baby photographs from yesterday's shoot - I wandered out into the garden for some light relief!
Aquilegia is growing like a weed out there! So I thought I would dig a few up - as pretty as they are there are other plants that would like to have some room too! :) And most of the flowers are now dying off! So quickly before they all disappeared I took a couple of photos of this pretty little plant in amongst the garlic chives!
get in touch for sizes and prices!

Granny's Bonnet - or Aquilegia
Authentic, honest and real photography.
My philosophy is keep things real. Photographs of your life the way you live it.
My baby and children photography is a true passion, and you won't find many poses, just natural images of squidgy fingers and toes and cute smiles and expressions.
Working with my husband we make up the photography team of Essential Images and shoot weddings, portraits and commercial commissions. We both have genuine fondness for storytelling images.
Living in the beautiful New Forest National Park we are lucky enough to have fabulous surroundings and many photo opportunities.
However, travelling around the countryside and abroad opens our eyes to people's everyday lives and cultures.
Thank you for visiting us today, we really hope you will come back and visit soon or follow us for updates.
