Sweet Pea seedlings

The yellow flowers are some freesias I grew in a pot. Lovely while they last, and a sweet scent too but not worth the space they take up unfortunately.

These were the ones I had this Summer, they developed grey mould though, I think it was just too hot and dry for them in a large container.

Very pretty and sweetly scented flowers while I had them though. Sowed these ones in January this year
