Front view of the plot on 5/25/07
Last year when I first had success with growing larkspur flowers, I was very diligent about scattering the seeds so they would come back again this year. And come back they did...
Same view now
Michael just shakes his head. "You are your mother's daughter," he says, referring to the way my mom likes to grow things in a very natural, let-the-seeds-fall-where-they-may kind of style. I mostly have purple ones in there (they're my favorite, and most likely I was more assertive with my re-seeding effort when it came to those), and there are a few white and pink ones mixed in as well. The yellow spots in the back are yarrow flowers, and there are a few self-sown red poppies off to the left. This whole section of the plot is humming with the buzz of happy bees. I call it "the meadow."
