I scattered a packet of seeds around this year - white Nigella! I do hope they decide to germinate and seed themselves as well.

Lovely Pic Spritz. I'm with you Bonkers, these lovely people are not so great when they can get away from the camera are they. Out for themselves and sod anyone else, as long as they can make money. Not my kind of people at all.

Spend a tiny amount on ingredients then charge an arm and a leg for artistic? presentation on sprauncy plates! Not my idea of a dinner out.

The 70's?

Yes, all right - the first ones opened in the 60's but mum was still feeding me then. lol

Is that all you three can think about? Your stomachs? Hmmm. I don't know. :-(

Following certain recent blogs, may I be romantic and say your "Love in a Mist" is beautiful, lol.

Hide your edible flowers if we come to your garden, Spritz. Violas are very tasty, I hear.

Dawn, thank you...

Wagger, NO!! There will be people in uniform to stop greedy visitors from munching the flowers....hehe.

I shall put a notice on the gate - 'Eating flowers is NOT allowed'. lol.

an all time favourite. had it all through my childhood. mum let us scatter the seeds from the pods every autumn.
still grow it and i think i always will. some of mine are out too. with lots of seedlings on the go.

I do hope the white one does the same. I tried purple ones last year and they were totally different and a disaster. No seedlings, either.

i sowed miss jekyle 10 yrs ago and i have a range of blues through to white. self sowing and mixing the genes :o)

27 May, 2009

 

That's what mine are, I'm sure. I also have a packet of 'Moody Blues' to scatter, and another packet of white ones. If yours have seeded themselves, that's a good sign!!! :-)
