    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.

  • 8. Cheryl  |  July 17, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    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:)

  • 9. Nic  |  July 17, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    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!

    • 11. Nip it in the bud  |  July 20, 2011 at 5:29 pm

      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!

    • 13. Nip it in the bud  |  July 26, 2011 at 6:28 am

      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.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #cookingwithkidsisfun #avocadoslicer #steeljiggers #stainlesssteeltongs #icecreamscoop #bakersdustingwand  #oxouk E's birthday is about 3 weeks after Christmas so I always start thinking about his celebrations around this time.  We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
