Does Anyone Know what Plant this is??

My Dad transplanted this to his yard a few years ago but can't remember it's name.
I plan on digging some of his up so that I can plant a bit in my yard.
It comes back each year on it's own and I think it is so pretty and delicate looking. It almost looks like a flower inside of a flower.
Just wish I knew what it was!

I've still got plenty of photos to share with you all from our trip but I've been super duper busy trying to wrap up our schooling for the year and attempting to get my Spring Cleaning begun.
Hope to be back tomorrow with a few more of those photos PLUS I'm way behind on reading all of your blogs. I'll be around to visit all of you soon!

That plant is definitely Columbine Jessica. It's one of my favorites; especially the wild ones. It always amazes me how God makes these beautiful intricate flowers just for our enjoyment.

Yuppers...is a columbine...they come in lots of colors...this one looks like the wild varieties I have seen...sometimes they cling to the littlest amount of soil in the rock outcrops and ledges along the gorges and waterfalls in our area.
I have several different varieties/colors in my gardens as well.

Looks like some others had the name of that plant for you - I grew up calling that plant "the honeysuckle" --- we would break off the inside stem and suck the nectar from it...this plant in the pictures is beautiful...

Yes, we've always called it honeysuckle, but I think it's a columbine. Leah learned her tasting from me, as we always did that as kids!!!! didn't hurt anything.

Yep they are on the right path. That's columbine. I have some in my flower bed.

Columbine...it's great and it will SPREAD itself generously! I'm talking from experience. But I like it.

Thanks to all of you for your speedy responses.
For some reason my comments aren't showing up on my post (blogger must be at it again!)but I received each and every one of your comments via email.
Thanks!
At least now I know what I am going to plant.

Hopefully blogger has it's problems worked out by now. I lost comments on my blog too. Can't wait to see the rest of your field trip photos.

I believe the name of your plant is Columbine.
