Oh lovely! I dream of picking flowers from my own garden – these are so beautiful, too!

Must do sweet peas next year!

could be a spot the flower competition. I have to be more careful with my identification this time but I see 7 different flower types – sweet peas, cornflowers, poppies (welsh & californian), lavender, campion, oregano and what look like buttercups in he field?

These pictures are beautiful. I am so desperate to have my own garden to be able to grow pretty flowers like these. You have a lovely garden.

Catherine – I’m so pleased with this bed. It’s the first time I’ve grown flowers from seed at the allotment. They don’t last long once picked but the sights and smells are wonderful.
Denise – such high return from sweetpeas from such little effort. I shall never be without them from now on :o)
Greg – fabulous, spot on :o) thanks for naming the Campion – we hadn’t worked out what that was (and it grew all on it’s own!)
Siona – thank you, the cornflowers would work well in pots…

Beautiful beautiful, heart delights – I am going to rush down the garden to the bit where I chucked the packet of wildflower seeds and look under the pots of purple potatoes and see what is there in the way of flowers, I always sow them in the wrong place. Potatoes are doing very well by the way as far as I can tell x Joanna

Beautiful – I can almost smell those sweet peas.

So lovely! My flower garden is so straggly this year – with your beautiful photos at least I can enjoy your pretties as if they were right here:)

So pretty and very colourful. I keep meaning to grow sweet peas.

Nice pictures. I have just started photographing flowers. Not the ones in my garden but wild flowers. I have lots of apples and wouldn’t mind if someone asked to pick them!

Joanna – glad the spuds are thriving. They’ll have some pretty flowers too then? Hope you found some wildflower delights at the bottom of the garden
Janet – and they just keep coming …
Cheryl – the joys of the virtual garden! (like envyingadmiring all your sewing creations that I know will never end up on my machine!)
Nic – they’re so effortless and I doubt my garden will ever be without them now
Mike – thanks, there’s always lots to inspire in nature isn’t there. Apples on tap… lucky you

Love your blog. Always gives me a smile to see whats growing around the other side of the world and for some reason i love allotments and their adventures!

thanks for your kind comment Cherry – a lovely way to start my day :o) There are so many stories from the allotment and not enough time to blog them! You’ve reminded me though that a post about some of the lovely plot people is long overdue.
