Delphinium Peacock

Wicker peacock with tail made from pink, blue and cream delphiniums
Flower show fun: a wicker peacock with delphiniums for tail feathers

Not a title I was expecting to write, but I had to share this snippet from one of the nurseries taking part in the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. This peacock was (metaphorically) strutting its stuff as part of the silver-gilt winning display of elatum delphiniums by Home Farm Plants of Covington.

Home Farm Plants is a family run nursery that uses traditional methods to grow delphiniums and other cottage garden perennials for sale to visitors on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Their website also mentions that they offer pick your own seasonal cut flowers at certain times of the year. I wish, wish, wish they were close enough for me to take advantage of that!

If you missed my earlier post of highlights from the show, you can find it here.
