Proof of God

I can’t believe how beautiful this Tabblo is. It makes my eyes happy. The artist lives in Vancouver and is very talented. Delphinium is my favorite flower, and its beauty if proof that God exists. Lucky bees! You an agnostic? An atheist? A Nietzsche Freak? A Doubting Thomas? Fear not! Look upon the delphinium and your heart will know the truth.

The blue shown here is my favorite color (I guess? I also love baby pink, rose red, and jade green). I painted Baby Benji’s room this color when he was born; actually, every boy of mine had a room this color at one point in his little darling life. Just imagine a bellydance costume with these colors! Actually, I have many of them already. Maybe now I’ll make a delphinium blue bra top with pink and green beading and use the rose red petal skirt I already have (or the jade green one I just made!) and maybe I should now try to make a cabaret style belt with fringe, also in delphinium blue.

And then my hips have to heal, but how? I can’t stop dancing. It is like that girl with the red shoes in the fairly tale, except my feet are bare!


Great Tabblo – makes me think of slug pellets! It’s that time of year around here – lucky us.

In interesting fact is that delphinium is one of the most poisonous plants in the world. Remarkably delicate and beautiful.

Another little known plant that is very beautiful is monkshood (or wolf’s bain). Similar to a delphinium and even more poisonous. In medival times, they used it in war by grinding up the roots of the plant and putting it in the water supply of the enemy.

Life always seems to have positive with negatives doesn’t.

If you live in a rural area with lots of deer, delphinium and monkshood are one of the few plants the deer instinctively know not to eat. Also, narcisuss and foxglove. I love foxgloves too. They are very easy to grow. One year I grew about a 1000 of them from pots to ground on one $2 pack of seeds.
