Continuing with the purple/pink theme I seem to have going on at the moment. Sweet peas are back in da house! Can't beat the smell and the nostalgia of sweet peas...
The first sweet peas of the year are in flower! .
I'm extra pleased with these ones as I didn't plant my own due to our house move so I picked up some half price from a garden centre. They were looking a bit sorry for themselves, but with a bit of TLC and the support of some homemade bamboo canes they have come along nicely. Not sure what's had a nibble at them already though? 🤔

Stunning show of nigellas at Airfield gardens yesterday (the camera doesn’t do these little gems justice!)
These have all self seeded en masse from the previous years but you can sow them in autumn for an early summer display the following year or sow in mid spring for a later flowering that same year, also they don’t like being transplanted so best to sow the seed directly where you want the flowers.
Sweet pea 🇬🇧🇷🇺 Душистый горошек
⠀Scottish nurserymen Henry Eckford cross-bred and developed the sweet pea, turning it from a rather insignificant if sweetly scented flower into a floral sensation of the late Victorian era. In 1882 he was awarded by RHS for introducing the sweet pea cultivar 'Bronze Prince'. ⠀
Шотландский садовод Генри Экфорд в начале 1880-х годов провел работы по скрещиванию разных видов душистого горошка и в итоге, из малоприметного цветка со слабым ароматом, создал сенсацию викторианской эпохи. В 1882 году Экфорд был удостоен высшей награды Королевского общества садоводов за выведение сорта «Bronze Prince».

The sweetest little face 💘 Sunny is starting to allow more “open-air pets,” especially as part of routine: right when we get home from work or in the mornings first thing out of bed. She likes to expect when it’s coming and she’s getting less nervous and more excited... even leaning into it now and then 🤗🤗 It’s still so early in our relationship (can you believe she’s only been with us a little over a year!) and she’s so young, we look forward to more and more “yes” moments as we chip away at her distrust. 🥰🥰 #ourgirl#SunnyBob#sweetpea#onherschedule#adoptdontshop#loveisaninvestment
