I learned about Flower Friday last year from Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pics. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
Today I chose to share larkspur–another easy flower to grow from seed.
I started growing this flower in our butterfly garden four years ago and it comes back by reseeding itself every year abundantly with little to no care! The version I grow is titled “cloudy skies” and blooms in purple, blue, and white.

Although these are said to not transplant well, I do grow these from seed in a tray and transplant out in the spring. Here’s a tray I started recently.
