After a week of talking about winter, delphiniums are today's inspiration.
Is it any wonder?
I have not had huge amounts of luck with delphiniums yet.
I planted some last year and as they come up the following season I am hoping for a display this year, if not quite as wonderful as this one then at least half decent. Last year I had a few from the year before but they were a bit ragged and soon fell over. I planted them a bit too near the sweet peas and these were a little attention seeking and got their tendrils onto the delphiniums and pulled them to the ground. Won't make that mistake again.
The wonderful blues and purples here is something everyone must want to experience in their garden, surely?
My own great British garden revival would be Delphiniums.
