Sky Watch Larkspur

This is my absolute favorite spring flower-- The Larkspur used to cover almost my entire front lawn in late spring and were a wonderful site to behold-- till I had to pull them all out because of an invasive parasite about 3-4 years ago. They have been slowly coming back but my DH accidentally mowed them all down this year but this one. So, I am really appreciating this one flower w/ the beautiful sky behind it.

What was the parasite? I mean was it on the flower itself? I just planted some Larkspur seeds yesterday and hope they grow. In fact I kind of ache this morning because I was up and down and crawling around and bending over and watering and digging holes and running the little tractor just to plant about 6 plants. But I think they looked nice and should look great in a few weeks. I enjoyed your blog and think you made a wise choise for sky watch friday.

I have seen three shot similar to this today, all with different spring flowers from differing places. Each one is a perfect picture for Sky Watch and I am thankful you chose this one today.

I do love those larkspurs!!! Keep it safe. I have some seeds to share with you, I bought rocket larkspur seeds at wildseed farms last month. I am saving them for planting in Sept or October.
