For the Love of Delphiniums!

Hello Everyone,
  I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I went to a few yard sales this morning and picked up a few things which I will share later. Today, I wanted to show you some of my delphiniums as I think they are such a beautiful stately flower.I should also mention that the flow blue pitchers above belonged to my grandparents and it was a wedding gift that they received many long years ago.

The basket above I bought at an auction sale last year and I painted it grey.

The garden bench as you may remember got a coat of paint last year and sits in our garden themed porch.

Well,I think the delphiniums look beautiful no matter what I put them in or where I put them!

I am off to visit my Mom and then my husband and I plan to go for a walk on the beach and watch the sun set.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

I love delphiniums, but I can never get them to grow? About the only thing I can't get to grow, darn!

How wonderful that you have such a treasure as your grandparents pitcher.

The flowers are gorgeous and the colors ... beautiful, fit the vase.

You have everything so well and tastefully decorated.
The seat is an absolute Highligt.
I could spend hours browsing with you.
Ha, maybe I should spend a moment on your bench.
Best regards,

Hi Carolyn,

They are beautiful! I agree, they're pretty no matter what they're in, but my favorite is the blue transferware. Your flow blue pitchers are gorgeous!

These photos are gorgeous!!!! I love delphiniums too. I think they just make a garden.
I loved your two posts before this one too Carolyn. i always have to go back and see every post when I miss a few days here, because I know that every post you do is full of so much beauty and I don't want to miss any of it. I love how you shoot vignettes that draw us all in.
