My Rare Aquilegia Vulgaris is Blooming

Aquilegia Vulgaris, blooming on my balcony this morning

For those who remember my earlier post on the Chocolate Flower Farm, you know that I received some seedlings in pots. One of them contained Aquilegia vulgaris, or Single Black seeds discovered in England by the owners of the Chocolate Flower Farm outside Seattle.

According to the description, there's only supposed to be a single flower. Mine has two. Does this mean it's even more rare?

I've brought it inside today, to enjoy its fleeting fabulousness.

Look at that color. Sometimes it's almost black, then when the light hits it right, it's a spectacular purple. 

Next....I'm waiting to see if my chocolate cosmos blooms. Stay tuned.
