In mid-March, I cast seeds for Poppies, Love-in-a-mist, and Larkspur on the hard frozen ground of one of my raised beds. Evidently these seeds need the freezing and thawing of late winter to germinate. They did not disappoint. If you missed them, the poppies can be seen here in a post I did on them a few weeks ago.
Now, the Love-in-a-mist and Larkspur have caught up and are putting on their own lovely display.
The Larkspur are nearly as elegant as their perennial Delphinium cousins, only more petite.
And I think easier to grow since I’ve never found Delphiniums to like our climate.
They come in my favorite garden colors, and hopefully will reseed themselves next spring.
In the bed next to the Larkspur, are the Love-in-a-mist (Nigella), who compliment them nicely with their soft foliage.
En masse, their softness is heavenly.
I found this bumble bee sleeping here this morning. He too, must have found it a heavenly place to spend the night.
I believe in heaven, flowers will have voices. I can only imagine the songs they will sing.
