Well yes, June is nearly over, but it's never too late for SWEET PEAS!
what is not to love about sweet peas! They are pretty, smell amazing and come in a beautiful range of colours!
Originally from around Malta and Sardinia and having a deep purple colour, they made their way to England around 1700. Many varieties of sweet peas were actually created by the Head Gardener at Althorpe House (Home of Princess Di)- a man called Silas Cole, thus the variety "Countess Spencer"..
The victorian meaning of Sweet peas is "delicate pleasures"...
I hope these sweet peas bring you pleasure this weekend and that you go out and buy some for yourself to enjoy!
