July Flower of the Month: Inspiration from the Larkspur

Wildflowers

The larkspur is a beautiful flower that comes in various colors, each symbolizing something different. In general, larkspurs identify with strong bonds of love. Perhaps because the most common color is purple, which usually represents a first love. Other colors include pink for fickleness and white for happiness. The name “larkspur” comes from the flower looking like a lark, and it has its roots in nature and wildlife.

Below are some ways to bring the energy and vibrance of the larkspur into your home and garden.

Bathroom: Bird Bath Shower Caddy
