A beautiful day

These pansies seem to never stop blooming!

The primulas have begun thier winter blooms.

And Malcolmia maritama, which is aslo called Virginia Stock, has just started blooming from its self-seeded plants. They should hopefully look pretty all winter.

It was such a beautiful day yesterday, I finally was able to do some gardening chores. I took down the sweet peas and beans, and collected all these seedpods! Two little blooms were still on the plants, so they went into a vase.
I decided to mow the sunny areas of the grass, that part of the lawn was not as boggy as the shady areas. Good thing too, we had a big storm last night, and the whole back garden is now under water! I should take some pics when it gets brighter.

Salix, your post reminded me to gather a few seedpods from my garden before it gets cold and damp. I found seeds on the Moonvine [Ipomoea alba], Blue pea vine [Clitoria ternatea] and Purple hyacinth vine [Dolochos lablab].

I bought a package of heirloom Sweetpeas to try in 2007. The color on the package looks similar to yours.

Annie, mine are just that! They are heirloom sweetpeas. Smaller flowers than the modern ones, but the scent is amazingly strong. And I grow sweetpeas for their scent, not flower size. I'm sure you will love them.
