Lovely delicate flowers and colours, Eliza. 🙂
Beautiful sweet peas!
So pretty Eliza!
Oh, the fragrantly delicate sweet peas!
A wonderful project! Thank you, Eliza!
Mmmm, divine! 😃
Wonderful colors, Eliza, and great focal point!
What a lovely colour scheme, and a reminder of summer, although at the moment I am enjoying autumn. Had our first frosts this week, daytime temperatures around 10 degree Celsius but sunny. We’ll done you with your daily photos!
Sweet peas are so lovely… I could almost smell their wonderful scent…
Beautiful, delicate, and I’m thinking I might need some sweet peas in my garden next year. 🙂
They are delightful. This year was the first year I had a problem with them being nibbled. Will have to use netting next year, I think.
That is good to know. The deer around here want to gobble up everything.
It’s getting to the point where either I have to barricade everything or plant it right next to the house, and even that isn’t a guarantee!
A lovely favorite. Hoping there are plenty of seeds resting, till they can bloom next spring. There’s a small meadowy area in a forest, near here, at the beginning of a walk, where they grow ‘wild’…maybe someone emptied some seed packets, years ago.
That’s neat that they self-sow. I deadhead, so have to get fresh seed every year – but it allows me to try different cultivars. 😉
Oh, sweet peas! I’ve never tried to grow them. Now I want to.
Highly recommended, they never disappoint. I suggest soaking the seeds overnight to soften the coats and plant 3 weeks BEFORE the last frost. Watch for rodents…they love them, too! 😉
I do love sweet peas.
Their fragrance is so amazing and those soft petals, how can we not adore them? 🙂
Thanks, Eliza — they’re gorgeous (and yes, they made me smile!!)
Glad to know it, thanks, Debbie! 🙂
That soft pink is SO nice!
Thank you, Sandy. Sweet peas are such a delight!
There’s nothing quite like the fragrance of sweet peas. Thanks for the memory, Eliza!
Thank you, March. I adore the fragrance of sweet peas. ❤
I’m SO hoping I’ll see sweet peas like those in a few months. The seeds I planted 2 (3?) weeks ago have germinated but I’m still struggling to keep the birds from “pinching” the seedlings.
I hope you have a good showing, too. Some years the critters are worse than others, darn it.
Sweet peas definitely cheer me up. Thank you
Thank you, Karina! 🙂
What a great way to spread a little cheer in these grey November days. So far day 2 is my favourite, beautiful shapes and colours.
Thank you, Andrea. Definitely a ‘share-the-joy’ kind of meme I can get behind. 🙂
Oh how I enjoyed this magnificent look at your sweet peas, Eliza. Truly one of the most fragrant, sweet, and delicate flowers we have on earth.
Glad to you enjoyed them, Jet. I only started growing SPs a few years ago, now I can’t imagine a garden without them!
Very pretty 🙂
Thank you, Eunice!
They are so pretty and the blooms are so delicate. Love all the different colors. Nice way to cheer up a dreary November day.
Thanks much, sweet peas always make my heart sing. 🙂
Lovely delicate beauty and color to brighten our rainy day!🙂
Definitely a picture that makes me happy. 🙂
Can almost smell them!
🙂 We need an app for that!
Wouldn’t that be a thing!
Oh gosh – they seem so far in the past now! Lovely picture.
Thank you, Cathy. Hopefully, that’ll mean it won’t be all that long until we see them again! 😉
Sweet peas! A wonderful reminder of summer’s beauty, Eliza.
One of the most swoon-worthy flowers… that luscious scent delights body and soul!
Always a pleasure to revisit summer!
Esp. when it is cold and nasty outside! 😉
Those sweet peas are absolutely gorgeous. In our climate they will only grow over winter once in a blue moon.
Thank you, I adore sweet peas, that scent is intoxicating!
Aw, these remind me of my mom. She used to love growing these. Thanks for the memory.
