and when I see these wonderful blooming stalks, I am drawn back to the memory of when I first discovered Larkspur. We were living in a small house, on a loud and grumpy corner lot, on a busy street in town. Along the back of the house, was a large gully, that ran down behind the other blocks in the neighborhood. When it rained, it would fill with murky rain water. One spring, I had gone out to dump trash in the alley, when I noticed tall color stalks in lavender, blue, white, and pink. I grabbed my shovel and soon dug up and transplanted a good portion of these flowers to my flower garden. To my delight, they flourished and for many years, I had an enormous garden of larkspur. Since moving out here, I have had little luck in getting Larkspur to sprout. This year, I tried containers on the patio.............and now once again, I am enjoying the pretty blossoms.
In the coaster set I am trying to finish, I had previously stitched this coaster design with my beloved Larkspur................
I am hoping they last through the summer and into our warm fall like they usually do.
I am hoping that by fall, my coaster set will also be completed.
How about you?
What's your favorite flower and when was the time you discovered it?
I would love to hear!
