The flowers are emerging slower than previous years. We're getting there.
All my kids've been born in November. The last two, the girls, while we've been in this house, in 2009 and 2011.
I've made gardens in every house I've lived in since I was twenty years old. I remember even digging a bed along my mothers driveway and planting Petunias to brighten it up.
My favourite garden memory here has been, when I have come home from hospital with each baby girl, and driving down the driveway to an explosion of roses. The seem to have all come out to welcome our new babies home. Just magical. Those were hot Novembers, with the temps well into the high thirties.
These white flowers are from a brassica. I think it's a bok choy plant or something like that. I always pick a flower or two to eat, as I walk past. They are edible and I love the taste.
|I haven't tasted the flowers from the broad bean plant, I do like the flower though. Plus from the flower a broad bean grows. We all like eating those, straight from the bush.|
|Charles de Gaulle rose|
|Cistus 'rock rose'|
|I love the smell of these mini carnations. Divine.|
|Just Joey rose|
|Statice makes a fantastic dried flower. It lasts for ever in the vase inside too.|
|Another fantastic fragrant flower. Sweet peas will never fail to send your sense of smell into overdrive.|
