It is Spring knocking at our doors here in zone 10. Larkspur, petunia and calendula flowers are blooming right now.
Larkspur botanic name delphinium consolida. Easy to grow from seed. The one i got required staking. I am also growing perennial variety of delphinium (perennial in hilly areas only and not in plains) delphinium elatum and grandiflora but not in bloom yet. Growing them in 10 inches clay pots.
Then comes calendula officinalis locally called Gul-e-Ashrafi one of the earliest spring bloomers along with dahlia.

These are very elegant blooms! Same color as my prom dress in 1988.
Oh….to be in zone 10. 🙂
the spray of delphiniums is truly delightful. I’ve never grown them, perhaps I should!
Looks like full blown summer there! Beautiful!!
Very beautiful blooms! loved that petunia
My petunias are growing like crazy. It’s amazing how one week of sun creates an absolute explosion!
