Delphiniums

The tall stocks and the vibrant, yet delicate flowers of delphiniums speak to me of the early days of summer.  I love the height they attain, standing so tall and straight.

You might also know this flower as larkspur, though it's name is derived from the Greek word for dolphin.

In the Victorian language of flowers, the delphinium symbolizes devoted attachment to your love, big-heartedness, enthusiasm, fun and lightheartedness.  Being a daughter of an astronomer, I love the star-shaped petals fluttering in a soft breeze like twinkling stars.

For those of you who celebrate your birthday in the month of July, this flower is your birth flower.  Loved creating this composition of delphiniums for you to enjoy!
