Look What I Found!

It's Delphinium, apparently!

I've wanted some ever since I read this:

Of course, that was over 30 years ago, now. And I'd forgotten. It's funny what memories can come back when confronted by a plant.

Apparently, too, I'll have to stake them. I hope they will still be visible through the forest of stakes!


Planting a purple and orange flower garden wouldn't be so awful, would it?

With my red roof?


In other news: Paint can No. 2 it is, then! It's called "Brown Cattail"--a most excellent name for a gardening fence, I'd say. I'll be renting the power washer this weekend and having at it.

Oh, and 12 years ago? Hubby painted the fence wrong. He painted it with latex, not oil as he should have. Thank goodness. If it had been oil, I would have had to use the same or sand. We tested it with a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover. Paint came off on the swab: ergo, latex. Cute trick, that.

Oh, very nice!

Purple and orange are both analogous colors with red, so why not?

Love the flowers! (I, too, read "Password to Larkspur Lane" many years ago. Now I'm tempted to get it and read it again, just for fun!)
