  2. Wow-how bright and cheerful--I just love it! Pinks, whites, blues, and yellows--all my favorite colors!
    I think that plot could cheer anyone!

  6. Beautiful - when I grow up, I want to have a cutting flower bed just like you, Sue. Um, 40 has been in my rear view mirror for several years now, so I'm wondering if I can still say that ;)

  7. Oh what a fabulous riot of colour Sue to fill vases with and give pleasure to passing bees and butterflies. Were the seeds a mix or from individual packets and did you sow direct?

    1. I sow the seeds In little pots and plant out as clumps, Anna - direct sowing didn't work well for me,

      I described it all on this post

  9. Absolutely gorgeous colours!
    I was wondering the same thing, (i.e. did you just scatter the seeds?) or, are they mostly grown elsewhere then transplanted?

    1. Hi Anon see my reply to Anna, direct sowing seemed to result in mostly weeds
