A lot of essential errands to do today so gardening time was very limited apart from a bit of watering and feeding.

But delighted to spot my first Cosmos and my first Sweet Pea open. Not sure which variety the Sweet pea is, possibly Caprani or something like that. Will have a proper look tomorrow. It was a perfect gardening day. But hopefully tomorrow will be as good.

Sweet Pea looks great

It's either Cupani or Matucana Jacinta.

I thought mine were late as they are just opening too but maybe not so late after all.

Did you have nice weather today - it was miserable here - rained non stop!

Ah, Moya, yes. 'Cupani'. It's so pretty.

Our weekend wasn't bad. Dull in the mornings, and brightening up as the day wore on both Saturday and Sunday, turning into lovely evenings. It's raining now. :(
