I was so inspired by Sarah Raven and her amazing hanging globes of sweet peas I had to have a go at growing my own. They really are one of the most evocative english summer flowers. I remember taking a bunch from my Mother's garden with the stems wrapped in a bit of tin foil! For my primary school teacher on the last day before the endless summer holidays began.
They smell divine and if you pick them regularly they keep flowering! gorgeous.
My clever Bert made the veg beds and built the shed and greenhouse with the help of Uncle Jim (or was we call him Un-cool Jim! He loves this monika!)
