  1. Well. I always enjoy and get a little spark of happiness from your blog. But sometimes, like today’s post, it’s so perfect that it feels like magic. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.

  2. Hi again…I checked with my sister and this is what she said:
    Monkshood – Aconitum napellus. Very poisonous but very common and very pretty.
    So the 2 commenters were correct(monkshood and aconite are 2 of its names, as is wolf’s bane)

  3. Lovely photo. Monkshood is very hardy. It survives -40 to – 60 degrees F in northeastern Ontario to reappear every year in our former home garden having stems with full blooms similar to Delphinium. Beautiful poem. Thank you.
