Hi all, 

 So went away for two weeks and have come back to a bit of a mess. All my sweet peas have gone over or died because the mother in law didn't water them so I've had to pull them up, glads have flopped over, and there are weeds everywhere. That will teach me for going away. However I have found this in the borders. Now I let the kids chuck down a couple of seed packets so it's probably from that but I have no idea what it is. Do you ? 

 Thanks in advance image

    Delphinium family. Either Perennial type or annual Larkspur.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

  • Thanks so much, I know I had a packet of larkspur which isn't there now so must be that. It's so pretty.

    It's a great value plant, and attracts lots of bees etc. They germinate very readily, so it's a nice one for kids to sow - makes a change from them doing nasturtiums too! image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
