Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea remind me of watercolor paintings. They start out this intense purple violet fuschia and as they die the color washes out and they become even lovelier.

I keep a small vase by my bed with them just to watch them change through the days.

Is anyone else besides me having the loveliest summer in long remembrance? My brain aches from all I have learned and my heart swells with all that has been given to me.

    - beautiful!! I agree, this summer is a beautiful one of changing and learning and so. much. good.

    sweet peas: My Nana used to call them "ladies in tea dresses" because of their delicate shapes and colours. I've not had much success growing them before now, but my Mum is the master (mistress?) Think I will try myself next year. Mean-time...perhaps I will rob some from her plants next time I visit, to brighten up the mantel ;) xx
