What a lovely colour! I DO like blue flowers, or dark mauve/purple. It always gives me the feeling of cool, shaded woodland-y spaces - maybe because of bluebell carpets - or just that blue's always been my very favourite colour, even though I was born in the late Stone Age when it was "pink for girls" - which may be why I don't "do" pink flowers that much!.

Love these I think the common name Monkshood is really fitting as there is an air of mystery about them;0)

They're called wolfs bane too I think, aren't they? I was reading up the other day about how back in the middle ages or whenever, hunters used to poison their arrows with it when they went hunting wolves, hence the name :)

I'm too scared to grow it incase my cats try to eat it though :(
