    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…

  10. Robin says:

    Beautiful, delicate, and I’m thinking I might need some sweet peas in my garden next year. 🙂

  11. Alice says:

    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.

  12. Oh, sweet peas! I’ve never tried to grow them. Now I want to.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      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! 😉

  13. Debbie says:

    Thanks, Eliza — they’re gorgeous (and yes, they made me smile!!)

  14. sandyjwhite says:

    That soft pink is SO nice!

  15. March Picker says:

    There’s nothing quite like the fragrance of sweet peas. Thanks for the memory, Eliza!

  16. Kris P says:

    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.

    Sweet peas definitely cheer me up. Thank you

  18. 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.

  19. Jet Eliot says:

    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.

  20. tippysmom2 says:

    They are so pretty and the blooms are so delicate. Love all the different colors. Nice way to cheer up a dreary November day.

  21. Lovely delicate beauty and color to brighten our rainy day!🙂

  22. Can almost smell them!

  23. Cathy says:

    Oh gosh – they seem so far in the past now! Lovely picture.

  24. Sweet peas! A wonderful reminder of summer’s beauty, Eliza.

  25. Always a pleasure to revisit summer!

    Those sweet peas are absolutely gorgeous. In our climate they will only grow over winter once in a blue moon.

  27. Irene says:

    Aw, these remind me of my mom. She used to love growing these. Thanks for the memory.
