I was reading Brookend Cottage’s blog about her garden, and her daughter’s sunflowers, and it reminded me of this little story.
We’d been to a ‘pick-your-own’ sunflower field near us. It was amazing to walk through a whole field of taller-than-me flowers. We picked a bunch for my mum’s birthday. As it was quite warm, I left them on the back doorstep overnight. In the morning, I had a surprise…
Well, that was three years ago, but it seemed a pity not to share the picture.
Today’s flowers are some late sweet-peas – I thought they’d all finished a while ago, but these are still hanging on and smelling divine. Our Gertrude Jekyll rose is having a second flush of flowers too – another good flower for sniffing.
