Feeling Floral

I cant quite believe it's almost 3 months since my last post, I really must try harder to get back into the swing of things. I have been spending quite a lot of time on my allotment this year and I am very pleased with my first crop of cut flowers. It's all a little bit experimental, I am new to allotmenting and have never grown cut flowers before. I was a bit late starting things of so am still waiting for some to flower but here are some of the usual suspects, sweet peas, cosmos, marigolds, chrysanthemums, cornflowers, euphorbia for some greenery and the little plant that looks a bit like cow parsley is called ammi visnaga.
