So glad you can spend some time in your own home again.
Your mum has a great sense of humour.
The flower is a wild delphinium. [D. consolida.]
Don't know what you call it in Canada.
I love the underneath picture, with that vivid blue in the haze.
Be well.

A gorgeous photo kim! Hope you are hanging in there and John's recovery is going well. Thinking of you....cheers from Singapore!

Just looked it up in my herb book: we call it larkspur, and it is VERY poisonous!
Like Monkshood, it is dangerous for children and pets. So don't let your lovely dog get near it.
It is so easy to underestimate the poisonous side of wild and garden flowers as they look so innocuous.
Don't let this stern warning spoil the pleasure of its beauty :-)

I can so totally relate to the funny your mom sent you!

Are these larkspurs?

I was going to say delphinium also but it has the leaves of larkspur. I had a volunteer this year, quite lovely. I di not know they were poisonous. Have a lovely weekend!

Hmmm ... I thought maybe they were Columbine but looks like I'm outvoted. Whatever their name, they're beautiful!

I'd much rather hang out with my greyhounds! They love me no matter what, they never judge, and all they want in return is a little affection, a place to run, and regular meals.

I've posted the link to my blog. It's not technically a "Friday" find, but it was an unexpected moment. Mimi (the subject) is part of family of dear friends who happen to live down the street. For the last four year I have vacationed with them in Gulf Shores Alabama, where they have a 20 year tradition of staying in a little blue house. In her younger days, Mimi was a charge nurse at an elite hospital, a nursing instructor whose 4' 11" frame hid a tiger with a temper, and a vibrant wide and mother. At 80, she is widowed and living with her son and family, cheerfully tending the yard, knowing that each day she loses a little more memory and she is quickly becoming the child in the family. She gets frustrated, but tried to remain cheerful, knowing that there will be a time when all her energy and memory will be fully restored, and glad she is able to physically contribute to the beauty around her. This particular moment came when I went looking for Mimi as she gathered shells. (She knew where she was, but we didn't!) She walked ahead of me as I snapped this picture with my phone (I am ever grateful for smart phones!) It captures Mimi's essence, and her ability to find joy in the small gifts we receive every day.

I just googled as I was curious about this flower. It is larkspur and delphinium...as larkspur is the common name for a flower in the genus delphinium.
