Sweet Peas

The sweet peas grown from seeds which I brought a little while ago a heritage plant of the Cupani variety which are famous for their scent.

I had not long picked the flowers, pretty much a daily task, before I took this picture. I can still hear my dad telling me to pick the flowers but stupid me liked to see them on the plants in the garden - not realising at the time that if you don't pick the flowers the plant goes to seed. So now I make myself, and put them in a small vase which helped to make the smell of boy dogs in the living room much nicer ;-)

I will let them go to seed eventually, but not for a little while, I would like to enjoy my flowers for a little bit longer.
