flowers from the allotment

27 Jul

The Man and I don’t knowingly grow too much that isn’t edible on the allotment but I have a soft spot for sweet peas. I’m yet to grow them as well as my Dad, but they grow well enough to keep me happy.

I love the fine yet sturdy stems and delicately drooping flowers; the smell takes me straight back to childhood summers. These sweet smelling lovelies are from a pound shop packet of seeds and so far have proved very good value.

I work from home quite a lot and having a bunch on the table while I work is a real pick me up, and that’s worth much more than a pound!

    What gorgeous colours! For some reason my garden has been a failure this year 😦

      Oh no, it’s frustrating isn’t it? This is the first year we have really had any to speak of.

    The flowers from your allottment are amazing, such lovely flowers, I think they would go brilliantly at a minimalistic wedding.

      Thats such a lovely comment, I’ve often thought they would make nice wedding flowers and they smell wonderful too.
