Sweet pea time

Lathyrus odoratus
FABACEAE, The Pea family

The soil is warming up a bit. It’s actually kind of comforting that the plum is just starting to bloom now. Last year everything was frighteningly ahead of schedule. Fully thirty days.

The plums are so lovely in their bud and bloom. Delicate and unruly.

Today I planted blue and lavender sweet peas around the topiary frames. Also a purple spring onion called ‘Apache’, Blue bread seed poppy, fava ‘Windsor’ and a salad mix from the UK with purslane, amaranth, red kale, leaf radish, leaf carrot, wrinkled cress and burnet. Sounds interesting!
