I'd never grown delphinium before we moved here. It's one of the very few really blue flowers. The first year we were here and our daughter worked as our housekeeper during summer break from college, we had gone to a nursery and she really loved the delphiniums, so I planted some.
They're in the planters that run along the front of our house. To the left are the little purple blooms of nurembergia and even farther left are just a couple of pink blooms, the last of the Mexican primroses.
