Sweet Peas, Seed Pod and Peace Poem

12 Aug

I am delighted with the wall of sweet peas we have grown to hide the shed and potting shelves. The mix  of Sweet Peas, Verbena Bonariensis and Love-in-a-Mist has been delightful, both colourful and scented.

I love how the Crinodendron keeps producing flowers even though there are seeds aplenty all over.

My friend Kim Ridgeon has penned the following beautiful poem. Read it aloud to feel how the carefully crafted words slow you down so that the meaning of the poem is enhanced and peace settles all around you.

    I was mellow prior to reading the poem, now am delightful comatose.

    Your sweet peas have been much better than mine!

      Some have done well but one pot failed miserably. I’m letting that one go to seed in the hope of them working next year. I think it was the mini heatwave that did for them and that was my fault for not watering enough.
