Larkspur in my garden

I consider myself kinda knowledgable about flowers since I have grown them for years, but I don't think I have ever planted larkspur.
If I have, it would have been years ago and I sure don't remember it. I was drawn to this beauty in the market a couple weeks ago. Can you guess why? Because of it's gorgeous white blooms!

I think they are just stunning.

The white blooms against the blue glass
make them look even more beautiful.

I planted her in front of my porch and when I shot this photo I was delighted to get my birdbath pedestal in the background.

White blooms with a french correspondence letter.
{I will tell you more about that later I promise}

I also had to throw in this photo of my Miss Kim
lilacs from a few weeks ago. This plant was prolific
in it's blooms this year and I was thrilled . Last year
it hardly bloomed at all. The smell is just
amazing and it is planted right outside our
back door so we get to smell it every day.

Linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm
again this week for White Wednesday. We certainly can't forget the most important day of the week in blogland now can we?

Blessings~

Your larkspur is just lovely, Sandi! It so-o caught my eye as I was perusing my blog friends. If that beautiful flower doesn't put you in the gardening mood, nothing will:)!

Now I know what I planted, blue Larkspur. They are awesome. Intend to get more next year ... maybe this year. As a child I remembered growing them in my wee patch in front of the garage & when I saw them I had to have that plant this year.

Wow! We got ONE!!!! single lilac off all our bushes this year ... yup! JUST ONE!! Ugh! Your are fabulous ... envy here.

Have a great week, my freind ~

Gorgeous! Both Larkspur and the Lavender blooms...I grow Larkspur and have tried Lavenders but our temperatures are so hot in the southern US that they don't live...

Happy Summer! Betty @ Country Charm
