Larkspurs In My Garden

 Last October I had a few left over seed packets of Larkspurs from a few years ago.  I scattered them in a narrow bed against the garage.  I was not sure if they were going to grow. The seeds of larkspurs are very tiny and hard to grow at times in my garden.
A few made it and it's nice to have them in my garden and also to share them with you.
 These I believe are "French Alouette" seeds are from Renee's Garden. The flowers are doubled.

 These look like "Parisian pink" French larkspur.  Seeds by Renee's Garden.

 A mixture of other seed packets by Botanical Interest of "shades of blue", "giant imperial blend" and "American flag".

Even in a small bed they give such a lift of color in the garden.
 It was hard taking photos of them against a light colored wall. Hope to get them back near the rose area next year.

 A bright beautiful shade of pink popped up.
They too make me smile each time I walk into my kitchen.  I will be purchasing more this year.
The months here to sow them are February - April and September - November.  I have in my calendar to start more in the Fall.  I hope you enjoyed the photos.  Thank you for visiting my blog and have a beautiful day.

I love the purple ones, such soft delicate blooms. Hope you get lots more of these growing.

Happy gardening.

What a crop! They are really gorgeous because of their soft, tender colors and length !

How gorgeous, they look beautiful in the garden and also as cut flowers. You've inspired me to look into growing some myself! XX
