Flowers everywhere!

I may have lost the allotment to an attack of invader weeds, but it's the best year ever for wildflowers. Trev tells me that the flowers on Lewes Road are nearly as tall as him and I've been wandering around town taking tons of instagrams to cheer myself up. 

Just thought I'd share a few for those of you who don't follow me. 

Poppies as far as the eye can see near Jonathan's parents house.  

A perfect Sunday walk back from the Race Course with Dan, Jackie and Jonathan. 

On the way into Kemp Town.

Poppies reclaiming the street on Clifton Terrace. 

A snapdragon on the steps to our flat. 

A carpet of daisies in the grounds at work

And my favourite, foxgloves in St Ann's Well Gardens.

We enjoyed these radishes thinly sliced with a generous glug of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. 

Delicious, and so easy to grow in a couple of old wooden cartons on the windowsill.
