just got a lovely scent from my wallflowers and was transported back into when I was a child happy days ????which plants do this to you ?
Roses, lily of the valley, mint and sage picked on Sunday mornings to go with lunch, tomato plants scenting the greenhouse, dandelions making my hands smell whilst helping dad weed, honeysuckle blossoms flowering in the hedgerows and freshly podded peas that ended up in my mouth rather than the saucepan to be cooked.
No scents sadly! Mum wasn't a gardener but today I saw honesty seed pods and boom, I was right back being astounded by these beautiful things that I saw in other people's gardens. I used to rate each garden out of 10 on my walk home from primary school ha ha.
My dad used to have blue lupins in the front garden under the window,the back garden cabbage and potatoes
I like the smell of a creocoted shed, makes me feel proper gardener-y!
