    Lovely reminder of summer!

  4. I had a life time love affair with sweet peas. Unfortunately, mine didn’t do well this year so thanks for sharing yours. πŸ™‚

    So pretty! Mine also didn’t do well.

    Sweet peas. I have a vase of them on my dining room table right now, their scent is heavenly. I grew them successfully when I was a small child but didn’t have any success with them when I became an adult. I think they must have magical qualities that only respond to children – or to adults with a child’s innocence, perhaps. I love them.

  7. Beautiful capture! Is autumn finding it’s way into the landscape yet?

    Sweet pea blooms in September! I am so jealous. The conventional wisdom here is to plant our sweet pea seeds near Labor Day but I’m going to wait out the current heatwave before I get to that.

      These had a late, cool start, have bloomed for months now, and amazingly, still haven’t petered out. It’d be great to get another 6 weeks out of them. Your cool days are coming!
