Lovely pics. I didn't bother with SPs this year, but now wish I had!

 

Hello, Annie....hope your enjoying the forum and pleased you like SP pics.

Personally, I think they are the finest cut flower you can grow.

 Old fashioned sweet peas usually have 2 or 3 flowers per stem, occasionally 4. Late Spencer’s have 3 to 5…..while  5 or 6  would be preferable for exhibition, as above.

The flowers should face forward and cover the stem.

Perhaps I have my cynical head on too...and given the widespread corruption in football, why not?

I like him, he's a genius...but most definitely not on this occasion.

Hugs, Lily. xx

PS. OL, yes, but my point is that I can't quite understand why he should have been awarded 'player of the tournament'  on this occasion.

Lionel Messi...awarded best player of the World Cup Championship?

I sure admire the guy, but surely he didn't show much enthusiasm and let himself & his country down.

"David, I used to raise money for a charity with my Vic sponge, I used to make them and people would donate,mi raised about £500 altogether and have been told they are very good (not my words someone else's)."

If only I were so modest! ....I would say that it helps that I make my own raspberry jam from my own grown raspberries.

Believe it or not, one of my biggest successes is with my Victoria Sponge......and those WI sorts really don't like it up em.

Seriously, the standard is nothing like Chelsea or Hampton Court....just enter a few roses or sweet peas....you'll need a show schedule though.

Sorry, OL   Even if it's a tad morbid, I still think there is something (as you say) beautiful about it.
