The Giving Flower

Oh wow! Just look what the sun has given us!!! A huge bowl of raspberries, red and black currants and a few more strawberries. It's finally time to get out the ice cream maker as I promised Master Beehive the younger and turn these babies into gelato!!!

These beauties below I am renaming; they are not just sweet peas they are 'The Giving Flowers'. This morning we took in small gifts for the teachers. I am somewhat anal with gift presentation. I wrapped in tissue and raffia and then added a small posy of sweet peas instead of a bow. We cut two posies from the garden early this morning and then, by this evening, the giving of these flowers to brighten two gifts rewarded us with at least triple the amount of blooms on the plants this evening! Amazing.
