..used to enjoy this until a couple of years ago.. no longer watch...  back in the days of Pop Idol, when Gareth Gates was up against Will Young in the final, I worked at a Call Centre which handled overflow calls.  There was never enough lines available in those days for voters and thousands (?) of votes went astray - to us - unrecorded.   Our job was to advise them to redial as the vote wasn't counted, but many were young children who simply didn't understand... 

..the overall consensus between staff there was that most calls that overflowed to us were in favour of Gates...but Young got the verdict...

...I think with your sweet peas I would move them to the greenhouse If you have one, then they won't be so leggy... I used to sow mine in pots in there during October, when they will germinate quite easily,  and leave them to over winter before planting out in Spring... they're quite hardy plants...

..very nice too and so frilly... not one I know, but if you like other frilly type roses then you might also enjoy one called 'Fimbriata'.... it's a Rugosa type with a good scent, and disease resistance... an offspring of the better known Mme Alfred Carriere...

..frills add a touch of charm I think..don't you...?
