sweet pea arch – take 2

By popular demand (well, two kind souls asked) here’s a picture of the whole arch; if I’d been a bit more assiduous in training them, I probably could have got the sweet peas joined over the top instead of growing wildly upwards, ever further out of my reach. The zinnias in the foreground were from seed and just keep on growing in a smiley sort of way.


Meanwhile, after a night and day of rain when I wasn’t paying attention, the beautiful healthy cavolo nero plug plants (variety Black Magic) were reduced to skeletal ruins by the slugs back home… I planted them out anyway and hope they may regenerate. Grrrrrrrrrrrr

    It is my belief that slugs will eventually take over the world. Meantime, look at those wonderful flowers ….. Catherine always has zinnias sprinkled among her veggies. I think they might be her favourites. x
