    Being a Yorkshireman, I should post 3 White Roses but seeing as I'm not growing any, Sweet Peas will have to do............I just wish the pic had a fragrance sensor.

    Three self seeded opium poppies, the pic doesn't do them much justice.

    Here are my 3 blooms in a vase

    purple poppies from seeds my Nan saved. I've renamed them promiscuous purple poppies because there are so many different shade.

    My first year of growing alstromeria, and I'm hooked on them already.

    I had a packet of Lavatera Trimestris which I saved from a 2015 garden magazine. I wasn't bowled over by the photo on the front but I gave them a go.

    They look beautiful close up with the striping effect on the flowers and are the star of my flower bed. I've got some white ones as well but I really love my pinks

    LOVE growing food to eat in my little town back garden. Winter update: currently growing overwintering onions, carrots, lettuce, chard, salad leaves, kale, cabbage, radish, beetroot, garlic, broccoli raab, some herbs.
