Purple sweet pea.

They really do live up to their name!  Sweet pea.  They have a lovely sweet fragrance, which matches their very pretty flower.  I mentioned in an earlier post that I planted some at the front of my fruit garden in the hopes that they would help beautify it.  I’m not sure if that is exactly what you’d say they are doing, but I think they are lovely!

They are a somewhat delicate flower, showing off different shades of pinks and purples with a few white ones thrown in for good measure.

A little sun light goes a long way to showcase the flowers.

It is seriously difficult to make the darn chicken wire look attractive. I was going for the “curtain of flowers” look!  I am considering other options for the future though.  I’d love to source some sort of wooden tee-pee type structure.  I’ll let you know if (I mean when) I find them!

It rained today.  It felt like today was the day we’d make-up for all of the rain we didn’t get this summer! Lashing rain all day.  Yuck.  So I felt the need to post my pictures of sun kissed sweet peas.  Lots of ’em.

There’s no point in wasting perfectly happy pictures, right?  I do realize that the content for sweet peas is quite light, but I think that is O.K. now and again.

They are such a sweet, simple flower.  And so easy to grow!  I’m glad I planted them this year.  I hope they brightened your day like they did mine! 🙂
