Sweet Peas on Flaunt your Flowers Friday

This is the first year I remembered to plant Sweet Peas in the fall.
I love the way they smell!
A room with a view!
I can see them when standing at my kitchen sink.
In all their multicolored glory.
The Sunbonnet Baby
See the pretty sweet peas
Growing in the sun;
How they lift their faces up,
Laughing every one,
So the sun may peep inside
Their pink bonnets, big and wide.
Eulalie Osgood Grover, 1902
I like to cut them and put them on my table...
and use them for photographs of my real job.
Perfectly Sweet!! Peas!!

  1. Sweet peas are so good to photograph. I photographed some of mine lat summer at night. It was an interesting picture. You have some great color combination's planted together. Very pretty. The picture with the little dress is so precious. Gorgeous!

  2. I love sweet peas! I used to grow them all the time at our old place - they would just come back every year. I need to get some started here!

    We got 1 1/2 inches of snow today so I don't think I'll be planting seeds today!

  3. I love your sweet peas! I am totally amazed they are blooming - I planted mine the first of April and they aren't even peeking through the ground yet. Wow I am amazed - thank so much for sharing, Paula in Idaho

  4. I love your sweet peas! I've never tried them, looking at yours makes me want to :) hahaha
    Great pictures! Have a great weekend!

  5. I love Sweet Peas! Ours are just a few inches high now, but seeing yours makes me excited for mine to bloom. I love the little lavender bouquet of them.

  6. I love Sweet Peas too! I got them started a few years ago, now they reseed themselves. Love to see where they pop up at

  7. I love the colors of your sweet peas! I hope the ones I had last year seeded themselves. I haven't seen any so far, but I'm in zone 5b.

    Thanks for visiting my April 8 Fertilizer post. After seeing a number of new comments on the post, I went to Tootsie's blog and clicked on my link. It did lead to that post. If you are interested in seeing my latest one, here's the link:


  8. Stunning Sweet Peas. I planted them and am hoping for at least one bloom. Have a good gardening day.

  9. my favorite shot it of the sweet peas peaking out from behind the fence! I love them...I have a friend who covers part of her fence with them....they smell just wonderful!
