Delphinium, or more commonly larkspur, is a pretty flower that I really like; not least because it’s the “July birth flower” and it’s my birth month–so there’s that connection. Admittedly I’m fairly biased towards things related to July…always really have been. But that’s just a rather minor reason why I’m fond of this particular flower. I’ve got a bit of a thing for strange and unusual flowers. Not that they’re rare on their very own, nothing like that–but I’m strange among my friends. Most of them like lilies and roses, which are fine, but not my favorites. I’m not above pretty, very popular flowers, but I have my own personal favorites. Delphinium is far prettier to my opinion.
