Lovely :) I think I like the horseradish ones most - they're so delicate. But I would be a bit wary of planting that in the garden in case it took over everywhere, seeing as weeding isn't exactly my strong point...

Wow those crimson broad bean flowers are stunning.
Nice flower show thanks!

Broad bean flowers are so gorgeous and the bees seem to adore them. I planted three of your crimson broad bean seeds and they look like they should be in the flower border, not in the veg bed.

Matron they are beautiful and even more so as they will all produce something edible.

Winners all!Could you do a little tutorial on cutting the tomato shoots to make extra plants?The frost did not hold you back too much they are all looking healthy.

I love seeing the herb flowers, even more so the sage.

My sage is my pride and joy after growing it from seed and I'm extra excited about seeing mine flower as it's still in bud.

I love all the photos of your vegetable garden flowers. I think these are better than any formal floral display. i love it when our vegetable garden is in full bloom.

The horseradish flowers really are beautiful.I must get round to planting some,even if I don't use it the flowers alone are worth growing it

Phew, what a relief, for a moment there I thought something was terribly wrong with you as Matron doesn't do flowers. But these are gorgeous and many of them brighten up the Bliss potager as well.

BTW there are cute pics of widdle Tara on my blog today. With rhubarb! And strawberries! Now who can resist that? ;-)

Every bit as pretty in their own was as all the fancy over designed artificial gardens on display. Not only that but useful as well.

Peggy - I was thinking of doing just that! I have lots of side shoots now to prune back and re-plant.

Just imagine! All these beauties will eventually produce all those delectable veggies? What more could one ask for!
