They are beautifully colored flowers!

Typical for my garden this year it has a mind of its own. Purple is not one of my favourite colours an as you can see there is just one lonely white pea flower swamped by purple. An it looks like there are more purple than any other coming long outside too. There is a lonely red one though.

Purple isn't one of my favorite colors either, but in nature, all colors are awesome!

There will be more colours later on and these are pretty much bog standard sweetpeas. I have grown the frilly ones and double ones and the ones on really long stems and the very old english ones that do not look much but smell divine.
I'll send you a packet of seeds if you like. Prices range from about £3 to £6.  :breakfast:
Unfortunately, seeds are out for me.  Almost anything in my yard is a midnight snack for the deer.  I cover my hostas with garden net, but I've just lost parts of two hostas where something (deer, groundhog, who knows) got under the net and moved it.  I'll just enjoy the pictures of your sweetpeas!

There is a low range sonic device that will keep small animals etc. outside your perimeter. It might be handy to have one on a time switch.
But if there is a dog or cat in residence they will not be happy

Here is another pretty green solution. :rolleyes:

You could grow sweat peas in a hanging basket as they trail ok. ;)

Thought you all might like to have a walk up to my place and a quick look into the garden.Starting only a couple of hundred yards away from the cabin on the farm track, any further back and you do not see the cabin.

Afraid chipmunks, which I love although they can be unintentionally destructive, would not like it either.

What are the tall yellow and red plants right outside the window?  Look like some kind of lily?  Very attractive.

Yup lilies. Two types, one all yellow and the other is yellow and red.The yellow and red ones were smuggled in from Latvia by some relatives for me dad and I keep them to remind me of him. No scent though which is a shame. B)

For ebrke a close up of the lilies.Me dad got the lilies in 1994 and I have had them growing in the same pot since 2000.

A fushcia that cost £1 this spring, doubt if it is hardy. An as me garden seems to live in an alternative universe I have no idea if the plant will get much bigger. It should do but it has not grown much in 6 weeks or so.The picture does not do it justice but I was too lazy to use a tripod.

Posted Image

An a lonely begonia called Apple Blossom cost £1. it should be surrounded by masses of other flowers but fate decreed otherwise.

Come on folks I'm posting me meagre flower show. Where is your offerings ???

In southern California we have no flowers. Just astroturf where we want to have some green space.

You must have some flowers growing locally. I remember miles and miles of sunflowers when I was in that part of the states. :biggrin:
