sweet pea seed/flower colouration

Posted: 27/03/2017 at 17:02

The ones I sowed this year were definitely a darkish purplish brownish sort of colour  - the flowers are creamy with purple shading (or at least the pic on the packet is).

Maybe it's nothing more complicated than vanity ... he wears his specs for sowing seeds ... maybe, like me, he needs to wear them for dealing with slightly bigger things too nowadays?

Son used to call them Moon Biscuits when he was little - one of those was his treat when we went to a coffee shop in the little market town where we lived way back when ................

Agreed Obelixx , but there's a difference between being a politician and being a show-off and a bully ... Or there should be ... 

Its misty heading south and looks as if it was thicker overnight and maybe the wildlife were caught unawares by traffic being earlier today ... Several does and fawns dead on the road

Joyce - Hosta has kindly offered to pot up one of his hardy gingers for us next time we visit  ... our problem is over-wintering the less than hardy as we don't have a greenhouse ... just the little 'growhouse' up against the house wall.  

We seem to do most of our sitting out in that sunny spot in the late summer/autumn

Morning Joyce ... the plan is for Wonky to help us build a pergola over the seat in our Sunny Corner, and then we can have some pots of sunlovers placed elegantly around for us to sit and look at  ... Hosta's canna can go in one of them ... not sure yet what we'll put in the other one ...
