Columbines can be maroon

Maroon columbine

One of my dad’s personal vocabulary was volunteer. By personal vocabulary I mean words he was likely to use that other people were not; they weren’t used incorrectly, just far more common with him than most people. He used the word volunteer with plants to mean that they germinated and survived in a location where they weren’t planted. He was into a curated landscape…around the house—not in the woods.
