Of course, I would suggest sweet peas   I would just add that,  for them to be available for a June wedding the seed would need to be sown in autumn. Buy good quality seed from a specialist grower.....this way you'll be able to choose colours & fragrances to suit your requirements.....and don't forget the Gypsophila.

I've still never seen one of those

Lots of EHMs though

 

That's surprising, nut.....they usually drop from the host plant/s to the ground about this time of year, then burrow into the soil for the winter. They then emerge as a fully developed moth in the spring.......I see loads.

 I suppose this is about as good as it gets, Lyn....still far from beautiful, for me.

I agree, I have them as well, beautiful caterpillar.

 

One I took earlier, not sure everyone would describe it as 'beautiful'.

We do get our 'Mike' problems here  and I've never liked Mike Tucker either.
