Simply Beautiful – 24

Back with another post in my occasional series of posts looking at things that are “simply beautiful”, and in this one we are looking at some sweetpea flowers still showing colour in mid-September.

The first two pics are of Sweetpea Cupani, the first ever sweetpea to be in cultivation.

The following pics are of two of our perennial sweetpeas.

While enjoying the courtyard garden at the Emma Bridgwater Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent in mid-June and mid-heatwave too, we found the drying seedpods of honesty in different stages of drying out in readiness to spread its seeds. Gentle shades of grren decorated the circular pods of the Honesty, circles of fly away seeds sat atop allium stems and the drying pods of sweetpeas looked just like petit pois.
