A Sweet Pea Maze




As you know, a few weeks ago I visited the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California.
One of the lovely features they have for spring is a Sweet Pea Maze.





Once you enter you follow the paths and try to find your way to the exit. 






Now I know what you're thinking, this would be a piece of cake to navigate...looks
easy.  Well, let me tell you...it is not as easy as you think to find your way out!  However,
it is so beautiful being inside the maze that it almost doesn't matter...unless you are in a
hurry. The flowers tower over you and they are glorious.  The colors are beautiful and
amazing.












Well, after several wrong turns I finally made it out.  It was really kind of fun being lost
in the beauty of these lovely flowers.

I hope you are having a wonderful week.

I am linking over to RoseVignettes for Fresh Cut Friday.

Oh how I'd love to get lost in that maze! Sweet peas are one of my favorites. I grow them in areas to just look at and grow them in my veggie garden for cutting. I even have the perfect vase that I keep full of them every summer!

Thanks for sharing all these "sweet" pictures! I can't wait for mine to bloom :)

What a wonderful way to get lost! I don't have a lot of luck with Sweet Peas, but I'm going to try them again this year - I yearn for that Sweet Pea perfume!

Acquired Objects said...

I don't think I would want to find my way out, at least for a little bit, it's so beautiful! I love sweet peas I just wish they would last a bit longer.

Donna said...

Wow, those blooms are amazing! I've heard of corn mazes, but never sweet pea mazes! I probably would get into trouble there, as I would want to pick them all!!! Hope you are having a great week. Thanks for sharing such gorgeous photos!!!

How amazing is

2000 when we visited.
So much beauty, it's
dazzling!

Being lost in a field of flowers sounds like a nice way to spend an afternoon.

How absolutely wonderful! I've always had trouble growing Sweet Peas...am trying again right now. One year, yes one year, I did have them and oh so lovely!
The colors here are just amazing; love it!

Love the scent of sweet peas. What a beautiful view! We have some "volunteers" popping up occasionally...left over from the previous happy gardener! Such lovely, fragile colors! Thank you! XO Trish

Hi Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving such a nice comment.

A sweet pea maze ~ how wonderful! Not only the beauty, but the fragrance must be amazing. I love sweet peas and plant them every year, I can't imagine how much work it must have been to plant all of these. Maybe next year I can go and see them. Have a super day.

Stephanie Lloyd said...

I love old fashioned flowers and these sweet peas are just beautiful. I love, too, that you take me to so many places that I would, otherwise, never see. I can almost smell them as I imagine being happily lost in the maze. xoxo

I just brought my 74 yo mom to the computer screen for a peek. Her birthday flower is the sweet pea and she just loved the maze.

Take good care,

Wow, that looks like so much fun! The only kind of maze I've heard of is a corn maze, but this is so much better and prettier! I enjoyed you photos!

Poppy said...

What beauty and I can only imagine how fragrant the garden was.
I would love to visit that fabulous nursery. Thanks for sharing.

Shirley said...

In our area we have a corn maze. I have never been as I have a phobia of closed in spaces, but I bet this was so much fun. I would rather the Sweet Pea vs. corn stalks anyday. The flower is such a beauty!

Liz said...

Oh My Gosh! That is the coolest thing. I love your photo with the church in the background. Thank you so much for joining in for Fresh-Cut Friday. :) This was an awesome share! :)
