Meadow rue is a great perennial plant in the flower garden. I believe that its flowers come in yellow and lavender at least; this one is a lavender. The leaves actually look very much like columbine, but this plant gets much taller, maybe 4 or 5 feet (1.5 meters). It’s getting ready to have puffy, hairy sort of flowers, kind of like ageratum. Doesn’t sound pretty, but it is. I’ll show a photo when it’s blooming, which should be in a week or two. I like tall flowering plants as they just feel so abundant, plus of course the flowers are closer to my eye level.

Visit Shadow Shot Sunday, Macro Monday, Outdoor Wednesday and SOOC Sunday (straight out of the camera) for more neat photos with a theme. If you see only one photo below, click on Sara’s Fave Photos for more, and possibly more recent photos.
