Sweetpeas at Easton Walled Gardens

Hurrah it is sweetpea time again, always a joy.  I was thinking of where to go and spend an afternoon with a friend and suddenly Easton Walled Gardens sprang to mind.  This is always a favourite garden and definitely the top of the pops for sweetpeas.  

It was a bit cloudy, but it was warm enough when I visited.  The main reason for the visit was to see the sweetpeas, so we headed for them first.
Except I was immediately distracted by this wonderful succulent display.
I want this one, I really want this one.
I eventually did reach the sweetpeas and it was worth it.
There was much sniffing.  The weather was not quite warm enough to make the scent strong, but a good sniff found it soon enough.
Different colours and varying degrees of frill were compared and contrasted.
Look at the colours on this one - Linda Carole - I like to think it might have been based on her petticoats.
There were so many sweetpeas to enjoy, including these rather lovely perennial ones.  I cannot see my perennial sweetpeas this year, I think they may have keeled over, which is a huge shame.  I must replace them.
We had a really lovely visit and some very good cake.  As ever I think I should visit more often as I always enjoy it when I do.

Take care and be kind.
