We visited a farmers' market last weekend. I could show you some pictures of the beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables which we took home with us... but instead I am going to show you these gorgeous delphiniums.
Their blueness is breathtaking.
I thought they were a spring flower and was surprised to see them available so early, after all we are only ten days into winter. I don't know how or where they were grown and don't really care. I am just delighted to be able to enjoy them.
I expected the petals to drop very quickly, but after four days in a vase, I am pleased to say they are holding up well and their beautiful colour has brightened up a couple of wet winter days.
