In a vase on Monday – gardey loo!


Whilst my late planted annuals are just starting to get going, there are two things already available in abundance, so I though I’d bring them together.

Firstly, the Flower Carpet roses just go on and on.  I did give them a water and some feed as they were starting to look a little exhausted, but they seem to have perked up.IMG_1240

And the second is sweet peas.  Whilst the ones in the greenhouse have pretty much ground to a halt, those in the garden are in full swing.  These bright pink ones are Lathyrus odoratus ‘Annie B Gilroy’ and whilst they’re not a perfect match for the roses, I rather love the clashing pinks.IMG_1242

The pinks were joined by some lovely fresh green mint sprigs, and, having already got sweet pea arrangements in three other places, guess where I put it?!IMG_1244

With thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who hosts this lovely meme.

    No dahlias after all – that was a surprise! Love this combination – ‘Annie B Gilroy’ is such a nice colour and I see that I will have to be kinder to my Magic Carpet roses as they have not done much at all – not sure that being in a pot suits them after all… Thanks for sharing Jen

      I like to keep you guessing! Actually some of the dahlias still in pots are looking a bit peaky. Thank goodness I’ve got my HSDs to entertain me….
