    We've got severe gales forecast for tonight, so I thought I'd go up to the allotment and cut a few flowers before they get ruined by the wind. Amazed to find so many plants still in bloom in October.
    Here's my pickings - sunflowers, calendula, verbena, rudbeckia, salvia viridis, nigella, ox-eye daisy, cosmos and sweet pea.
    The salvia viridis is the bright blue flower in the left foreground, its from the sage family and the blue 'flowers' are actually leaves. My first year of growing it and I really recommend it.

    Not so many flowers to cut now (wish I'd grown some late asters)

    Rudbeckia 'cherry brandy', and crocosmia 'sunrise'

    Allium sphaerocephalon, knapweed, sweet pea, salvia viridis, phacelia, ox-eye daisy, ferns and sunflowers.

    The sunflowers are a bit of a sore point... I bought Vanilla Ice sunflower seeds which have large cream petals and a dark centre, but the seeds turned out to be generic sunflowers. Anyhow, I'll try a different supplier next year.

    Calendula, brocolli flowers, sweet pea, crocosmia, euphorbia and fern (bit of a colour clash going on..I should've added some blue salvias to make a rainbow)

    Aha! Best to save to computer, then, rather than try and post direct from iPhone.

    I gave it a poke with my Pointy stick
    Actually, I saved it to my computer and edited it - then reposted it

    I wish you could smell the scent of these sweet peas! It fills the kitchen and living room. I've been picking 4 bunches a week of these since June, half from lottie and half from the garden. As soon as they grow droopy in the vase, another profusion of flowers is waiting on the plants. Have never grown sweet peas before and am WELL impressed!!

    Sorry they are on their side, by the way. Can't get the pic to turn.
