Sweet Peas, Spider and Swan

18 Sep

1   The Sweet peas are lasting well despite the sudden drop in temperature. I love their colours against that beautiful crisp blue sky.

2   I know you don’t all like spiders but this is a beauty and look at the intricacies of all the webs he’s been working on. I’ve tried to identify him but haven’t been successful. Any ideas? He was in the bottom of an old flowerpot.

    I remember as a child my dad always made a point of growing Sweet Peas. I remember the more you cut them the more they seemed to grow. I can just smell them in your photograph.

      The trellis is an old metal pan stand! It has worked well for growing the sweet peas. 🙂

    A very big spider and such lovely sweet peas. I like the sweet peas and the swan almost as much as I dislike the spider 🙂
