Calke Abbey Garden 7/7

The last in this series of shots taken in the walled garden at Calke Abbey.  They have a magnificent display of Sweet Peas, this being just one genus among the many on show.  I will not even try to guess at the name of this one, there are so many types according to Google.  I'm staying in the garden for the next series starting tomorrow but this time you won't see plants and flowers, keep watching!

I like the blooms on the right, especially. You've got good detail there and the colour is lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, what I didn't notice at the time is that big leaf right across the middle!
BEAUTIFUL! The color is gorgeous!

The peas look sweet, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Ray, my Dad used to have quite a display of Sweet Peas in our garden.
Pix #3 was my favourite till I saw 6/7. I enjoyed them all though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Jacquelyn.
rich pink color, like it a lot
Brian Walbey: Yes they come in so many colours but this is a rich one as you say.
My mother was a great lover of sweet peas.
Brian Walbey: My Dad always had a good show of Sweet Peas, indeed Maureen has one in our front garden which tends to get a bit rambly by the time Autumn comes.
This is wonderful Bryan ... We have the naturally growing 'everlasting pea' growing in our Leicester garden ...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. Maureen has one in our front garden that gets quite profuse later in the Summer.
Brian ... even.
Brian Walbey: Apology taken Dennis smile

These things often smell so nice
Brian Walbey: Yes where they are grown en masse there is usually a lovely scent hanging around on a still day.
As you say there are many kinds. Some are bred for size, some for smell. I am always chose the ones bred for smell. Small is fine.
Brian Walbey: They come in all types as you say, we have one at the front of the house which tends to get a bit profuse by late Summer.
A wonderful way to end your beautiful series Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
