The color along with delicate foliage is such a nice combination, they are extremely easy from seeds.. they are winter season annuals and die when the heat arrives..

I am impressed with the angel's trumpets the plant is so healthy. As compared to Devil's trumpet the angel ones do not grow very well in lahore. Their fragrance is well worth it. Larkspur are looking great.

Amazing as usual Izhar. I think you take the prize for the most colors in a lawn. I will say again I just wish you had the time and energy to plant green grass around the beds. Everything would be so much more dramatic.

They are spring annuals here, some double blooming pelargoniums could be saved like dahlia in shade but they bloom only in cooler season here

Nice meeting you too Asim, only the larkspurs seedlings need a quick potting or they will will die.. others are already in pots and you can shift them at leisure..

@ aykhan: as i am relocating so nowadays i am distributing seedlings among the residents of our housing society... the blue of larkspurs, yellow/orange of marigolds, cosmos, nasturtiums, red of salvia, pink of phlox are now becoming part of most of the gardens n lawns of our area :)
