The Delightful Sweet Peas





I am delighted to say that the Sweet Peas are blooming in southern California.  I love these
sweet little flowers.
I thought I would show you some of the photos I took last summer while visiting The Flower
Fields in Calabasas and also some from my own garden.  I hope you enjoy seeing them
(you may have seen a couple of them before)...
























Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day.

Be still my heart!!!
Incredible photos Susan!
The picture of the sweetpeas in a vase against the red napkins should be in a magazine!!! Why isn't it in a magazine? :) I'm always surprised at the differences between our weather and growing seasons. My brother grows sweetpeas too, something we won't see until July.
Beautiful!!!
Hugs Rosemary...xoxo

Beautiful pictures, as always. I love sweet peas, I have some coming up in my garden. I've never had red ones though. And the one's in your pictures are so pretty.

Take care,

I am growing several varieties of sweet peas this year for the first time. A friend with a greenhouse started them from seed for me and if mine look half as pretty as yours, I'll be happy.
I chose all fragrant selections and I know they are a super cutting flower. Love the red you have.

Lucky, lucky You, to have Sweet Peas already! Is there anything prettier, on a summer table, than a colourful bunch?

Flower fields of Sweet Peas, that must be a real showstopper Susan.
I can imagine the scent there is incredible.

Good Morning Susan: Somehow I missed your comments on my Garden in the Sky post. I'm so sorry that I didn't respond to you until now. I appreciate all your kind words and comments. I am now your newest follower and the sweet peas are wonderful. I have never planted sweet peas before and I can't imagine why because I have always loved them. I think December is the good time to plant there here so I will do so,if not, please let me know when is..Happy Mother's Day..Judy
