Think these are wild plants and not escapes. Growing on a scrubby hillside. On limestone

What a gorgeous colour. I love Aquilegia and try to save the seeds of the ones in my garden each year and scatter them about. Mine are mostly pinkish. I read somewhere that self sets don't come true to colour and can look 'muddy' but I still love them We have acid soil. Our were in the garden when we moved here zillions of years ago so we didn't sow them. I've never seen any growing in the wild.I think they are sometimes called 'Granny's bonnets'
they are one of my favourite flowers. I think these are genuinely wild because of their location, the colour and the curved spurs. Garden varieties come in varying shades and colours and their spurs are more often straighter.
