Sorry I know you’ve already seen it before but this is such a special place it’s become an annual walk for us , it’s difficult to get to even with thick socks and walking boots but it’s well worth it . the sight and scent is amazing.
Lat year I went back in the autumn to collect seed for Dawn who has had great success in starting her own little patch of paradise ..

I hope you enjoyed seeing this special place …..

Thanks for making the effort Amy. I grow one or two of these in the garden for their scent - I can only imagine how heavy (heavenly!) the scent is there!

Yes, I grow it too, but en masse is soooooo much better.

Thank you all , I'm glad you enjoyed this wonderful sight , I'm sure it's not a well known place because there's never any trodden down tracks leading to it, plus you do have to walk across fields to reach it .. it's my secret :o)

Shooooosh, don't tell anyone,

I'm not going to Val ,once people know they go all out to spoil things probably treading them down ....

26 May, 2011

 

sounds like there are not many people who know this is there, that's a good thing, would be such a shame for it to be spoilt,

26 May, 2011

 

wow what a lovely place..... so pretty

26 May, 2011

 

Just look at that, so wonderful. I can only dream that I will have that many one day. Thanks for showing Amy, I will be forever thankful to you. I have never know another wild flower that can hold its own amongst grass etc. Easy to grow from seed and survived last winter after second lot set out in the Autumn. I will certainly be collecting seed and growing forever :-) The aroma is fantastic too. I have some dark and some light ones, wonderful.

What a delight to see and breath in, I swear I can smell it from here.

26 May, 2011

 

That's absolutely fantastic, Amy, no wonder you want to keep it secret: what a sight!! Thank you for sharing it . . . I've never seen anything like it. :))

I've a tray of seedlings of Sweet Rocket in the greenhouse, and was wondering if I had too many, but now I know - you can't have too many!

What a carpet of beauty you have found, Amy. Absolutely stunning...your own secret garden :) How wonderful that Sandra has been able to propogate from the seeds you were able to collect...she certainly has the situation/land to have a swathe of blooms one day :)

It's my pleasure Val .. WL ... It's Dawn who has propogated the seeds not Sandra :o) and she is thrilled to have started her own 'Special area ' ;o))
