Friday flowers

Delphinium are worth buying just for the name.

Luckily they are also lovely in their own right.

Lovely enough to convince me to share a rare vertical picture. (The obsessive side of me hates that vertical photos don't fill the entire width of the column, but I love that you can see the lip of the glass jar here - it's one of my thrifted apothecary jars.)

And to keep shooting as the light crept away and dusk settled in. The days are growing shorter.

They smell good too.


  1. I had delphinium in my wedding flowers so this post is bringing back lovely memories for me! Such a gorgeous rich color.

    Happy Friday!

  2. Gorgeous photos, as always!

    Also, you know you can tweak your blog to make everything the same width, regardless of height? I can help if you need any :)

    Have a great weekend!

  3. hahaha I hear you on the vertical photos thing... gorgeous as always though!

  4. yes, same same on those vertical shots--but this one is worth it. and i'm a sucker for the sink shot, too. lovely.

  5. So pretty! Sometimes vertical is just the way to go. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. delphinium are my absolute faves. they were in my bridesmaid's bouquets, and i have to admit i was a little bummed that they weren't in mine.

  7. I'm the same way w/ vertical pictures! Beautiful images, regardless.

  8. OMG beautiful! I love that color!!!

  9. Absolutely beautiful!

  10. the days are growing shorter indeed. but beautiful flowers like those keep things bright.

  11. I love the glass jar! Beautiful!

  12. Vertical photos can be wonderful... give them a chance more often :)

  13. gorgeous, i've never even heard of half the flowers you blog about!

    & the name is very fun :)

  14. How do you deal with the bugs on your flowers? I recently bought a bouquet of celosias from the farmer's market and I can't handle the little bugs I keep seeing on them

  15. great shots! i love still seeing the bright colors amongst all the reds and oranges of fall :)

    I know what you mean about the vertical shots; sometimes ya just gotta go for em!

  16. @ HC - I haven't really had a problem with bugs on flowers. There are sometimes little garden spiders when I pick roses, but that's it.

    I did once pick up some tropical flowers that must have been a magnet for ants! I ended up throwing them out because it was driving me crazy. So maybe it's the specific species of flower?

  17. What a beautiful series! Purple is one of my favorite colors and these flowers are just so danity and girly I love it!
