This flower stood out amongst the long grass on the chalky slope beneath overhanging trees. A bright spot of purple with a delicate intricate shape. I immediately thought of it as a garden plant. I was surprised when I looked it up and learnt that it is also a native or wild plant called Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris), and has characteristic petals with hook-shaped spurs. Disappointingly, I also discovered that this is, in fact, a garden escapee because I found several other plants nearby in a different colour (these were just opening and the hooks on the petals were still folded flat). How wonderful it would be to find a group of native purple Columbines growing wild on a woodland floor. [Photographed from a distance on a very windy day, 29 April 2020].
