Presenting my first and favoutite posy of the year! Sweet peas, chives, a geranium and rocket (if you grow rocket to eat, let some of it bolt because the flowers are just beautiful and smell great). Mainly though, this is about the sweet peas – about the heady, knock-your-socks-off scent and casual beauty. Best of all I grew all these myself and they are all fresh from the garden! Am tempted to grow a whole garden full of flowers just for picking.
The elegant vase you see pictured is in fact an old gherkin jar.
Wear a sweet pea flower in your hair to get that awesome smell following you round all day and to sport that Hawaiian hulu-girl look.
