Two Columbine in Composition

Composition of Two Columbine © 2011 Bo Mackison

These sweet columbine were dancing in the wind and paused just long enough to let me take their portrait. We planted these plants the first spring we moved into this home – 25 years ago. Each year they seed and spread a bit more. The columbine is one of my favorite Wisconsin flowers.


Bo Mackison is a photographer and the owner of Seeded Earth Studio LLC. I did not schedule an art fair this coming weekend, but I’ll be at the Leeper Park Art Fair in South Bend, Indiana the weekend of June 18-19.


About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    What unusual flowers, Bo. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them before, but if they are Wisconsin flowers, maybe we don’t have them here in Australia. Another plant for me to check out at the local nursery!

  3. They are beautiful! My wife grows some in the greenhouse and I look forward to their blossoms every summer!
