Sweet Pea

When I left home before market, my sweet peas were about a foot high. When I arrived back home they were about 5 feet and growing, and covered in flowers. My mom was keeping them cut so they wouldn't go to seed... and I'm so grateful. I have little bouquets here and there, and the air is so sweet. And just when the bunches are looking at little peaked, a new crop is ready to pick. If I can get out back in time, there is still dew on the petals.

Everything is looking a little crispy here after a short heat wave, but oh the sweet peas.. they can't get enough of it.
Had a nice lunch with Frankie yesterday, and today I'm off with Elizabeth. Need to get my focus back. Hope you guys have a great day. xo

Oh I love Sweet Peas! Those and Sunflowers are my favorites. Too late in the season for them here. I think I need to plant them in January!
I think you must have some pretty awesome gardens!

My sister Kate grows sweet peas every year. One year her husband accidently cut them all down with the weed whacker before they had bloomed! Man, was he ever in the dog house.

For some inexplicable reason I didn't plant sweet peas this year. I need to get my act together and plant some in the fall. They are one of my favorites.

My favorite flower. You can't beat the smell and no matter how many try it seems to never be duplicated in any other form. Enjoy.

These are so lovely and one of the things I really miss from life in California. I tried to grow them in Iowa for years, but no luck. Thanks for sharing!
