When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Lathyrus latifolius

🥳 🎉 🎈 Woohoo! It’s #tendril time. Is there anything more therapeutic (and GOK we all need a bit of therapy at the moment) than winding #tendrils to supports?!

You just reminded me to check mine, last time I saw it it was horizontal but now it appears to have attached itself to a sunflower a rose and the Japanese Anemones 😱😂😂

😂 You will have so much unwinding and rewinding to do you’ll be so laid back after all that you’ll be horizontal 🤔 @pelly

5 Aug 2018 • I’ve never noticed this before...the flowers don’t lose their colour like this if I leave them on the plant. They just dry up and peas form 🤔💜

How odd 🤔 I don't think mine has ever done this. The old flowers always fall off once the seed pods start to form.

I haven’t explained myself properly Jeff. The ones on the right are flowers I cut several days ago. They looked like the ones on the left when I cut them... @jeatacake

Well they survive longer in a vase than annual sweet peas do, even if they do change colour 🤔😉😂 @JaneyL

I didn't even realise it was that windy. Wet yes but not windy. It must have been a strange direction. Hope everything is OK in your garden @Keely

Should be OK thanks but too heavy for me to try and pick up on my own, so will have to wait until later... @clare2611

I think I may need to rethink what to do with this perennial sweet pea next year. Its an east facing wall & I've tried moving it but it stayed put! Any suggestions?
