Seriously, it’s a jungle out there!
I am 5’4 1/2” tall, (gotta get that 1/2” in there) every little bit helps. Can you believe that this Larkspur is taller than me?
Last year I brought a few starts of Larkspur up from our Highland home.
When they had finished blooming I pulled them out and saved the seeds.
Last Fall I sprinkled seeds up on the hill behind an area that is our future fire pit.
This Larkspur is out of control.
This picture shows you where it is in perspective with our pondless waterfall.
When I was snapping pics I thought that it looked neat seeing it through this ornamental grass.
This is where our fire pit will be.
Now that’s a whole lot of Larkspur!
If I didn’t know better, I’d think that this metal bee has been doing an excellent job of pollinating.
These pics were taken from on top of the hill.
This Larkspur is where I originally planted it last year.
From there, some reseeded in the herb garden across the way. Originally I thought I would pull it out. Being the Larkspur lover that I am, I didn’t have the heart. Besides, it just makes the garden more cottagey.
Most of it is dark purple and white. With a few pale blue and lavender.
There are only 4 spikes of pink in the whole lot.
Are you finding yourself saying, “What was she thinking?”
Let me share with you my thought process.
1. I love Larkspur! After all, it is my birthday flower.
2. It attracts butterflies, and I love butterflies. See my picture on my sidebar. I took that last year.
3. It blooms and then it’s outta here. I just pull it up. Good for any bare spots. There are actually some trees, bushes, and perennials up there. You'd never know it because they are buried in the load of Larkspur.
4. I think that it is much prettier in bunches.
5. I love Larkspur! Did I already say that?
It may be a jungle out there, but I’m lovin every inch of it!
