SNOWDROPS are very dainty and beautiful but I've seldom seen them grown in Perth. Our previous neighbour years ago had two little plants in her front garden but they sadly are long gone.
SWEET WILLIAM are also a flower I think is beautiful but I've never had any great success growing it. I think dad used to have some growing in his garden but then he tended to have a green thumb and could grow almost anything.
P.S. Now I know for sure I am going a little potty as I left off here what I would think would be everyone's very favourite garden flower.....SWEET PEA......I remembered it when in bed and they had to be added here before it was too late.
Am I correct in saying you need to get the seed in before 17th March although that of course would only be in the southern hemisphere!
No matter where they grow or at what time of year, they still remain my very favourite"S" flower.
Do you have a favourite "S" flower?
It is 31 years ago today that my mum died and I am wondering if perhaps thinking of her, the thought about sweet peas came into my head as it did. She was a wonderful woman, a terrific mum and a much loved grandmother. She is still missed and always will be. I often talk softly to her and when in pain occasionally call her name. She was always there when I needed her over the years. Many of you of course followed her life story when I copied here book here on my blog last year. She deserved a nice long rest after all she did for so many people. I always loved this picture I took of my mum when she was holding my daughter who then was only a few weeks old (in August 1955).
