Another page in my Gardening Journal

I planted delphinium this year, it is one of my favorite flowers but I haven't always had great success with it. I don't know why I am constantly trying to grow things that I struggle with, must be the challenge. My mom planted a few last year and they did ok, but not great. This year , to my surprise they came back so I added more! They are beautiful!! I love the blue, there is no other blue like it, a true cobalt glazed pot blue! It doesn't look real. I debated whether to even paint them knowing I can't capture the blue correctly. I plan on planting more next year and hope that these will come back! I like the pacific giants best, they are bigger than the magic fountain variety.

Gorgeous flowers! And such a beautifully drawn journal page. It looks like it should be in a luxuriously published coffee table book.

I don't have much luck with delpheniums either, but I get a few every year and consider them 'annuals', especially the newer 'Blue Butterfly' variety. I can't get enough of that blue color.
