Firsts of the season

by Wendy Syddall

Just a few pictures of ‘firsts’ of the season. A rose called ‘Hot Chocolate’ with a lovely scent. It’s actually not the first rose to flower in the garden but it is the first of the ‘new’ roses only 2 years old (I think) opposed to the others which have been in the garden all my life!

A purple cornflower grown from seed and planted only a few weeks ago.

A sweet pea in a pot, not grown as tall as expected so far and therefore looks slightly ridiculous with the 2m supports it’s got! But it smells amazing and is more purple than the picture shows
