Bunches of Sweet Peas
Color my soul
Banish the gloom
Ah haven’t seen sweet peas in decades! I love the gorgeous soft colour palette.
The soft colors captivated my heart, I’ve always loved sweet peas since first seeing them at a friend’s grandmother’s house when I was about 7 or 8. They spread across a chain link fence that just amazed me that something so beautiful could exist there in the heat of Texas.
We used to grow them up in the hills in the plantation gardens. They wouldn’t survive the heat here in our torrid plains.
That’s exactly why I can’t grow them here where I am. Summers are terribly hot, and my garden has not very much shade.
Gorgeous! Some of your photos are too lovely to describe in words. 🙂
Thank you so much Sindhu, I am awed by your compliment! I’m so very glad to see you here on my blog.
Aww, I’m now following your blog. 🙂
Well, thank you! I’m so glad we’ve met here.
Pretty! I tried planting some of them but I failed. 🙂
Thanks, Imelda. I would love to have a wall of Sweet Peas in my garden.
A great mix of colours. Excellent shot
Thanks, WM! Have a great week.
Beautiful shot, Angeline. Those colors are so pretty! “Sweet” is right.
The colors roped me in. This is right out of the camera, too, no alterations. Nature is amazing.
Beautiful as usual.
Thanks, Professor. I appreciate your compliment.
These are really beautiful. I love sweet peas.
Thanks, Pat. I love them too, but have never been able to grow them. These were at the Farmer’s Market.
They are gorgeous Angeline! Love the colours! 😀
Thanks, Sonel. The color in this bunch is quite striking.
Absolutely! And you’ve captured them so well! 😀
You are very welcome hon. 😀 *hugs*
Yes to all of the above. Burying your nose in the middle of a bunch of sweet peas is a delight. Try as I might I could never get them to grow very well in my garden but I can’t pass buy a bouquet at the market. The combination of colour and fragrance is irresistible.
I have not been able to grow them either; it’s always too hot where we’ve lived. I always enjoy seeing them though. These were at a Farmer’s Market in San Francisco.
