Very, very nice!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Don't know how I missed this one! What a great banner! I love larkspur, but heard that it was poisonous to cattle, so I haven't planted any. I take it that you haven't had any problems with it, or you wouldn't have planted it!

We only grow it around the house where the animals don't have access, and it doesn't spread for us. It's a beautiful annual!

It is gorgeous! Do you know the name of this one? I'd love to try it, if it doesn't spread. I grew one at my last house and then spent the next 6 years pulling up seedlings, even though I had not let any of them bloom during that time. That was a bit much! I do miss larkspur though, and would love to find one that isn't as invasive.

I never knew the name other than just larkspur. We got it from a plant swap around here, I think. And just because it didn't spread for us doesn't mean the same for you! Smiling

Hilarious! I know, but I like to be hopeful, @dave! Weeds seem to spread really well here!
