Sweet Peas Gone Wild


The sweet peas have their very own raised bed! Every year they take over with wild abandon.

Soon, I will rip them out and plant zucchinis, but for now I'm enjoying them in all their purpleness.

Their sweet scent is intoxicating and immediately fills the room with fragrance.

Can you smell them?

I'm going to call this windowsill vignette, "Still Life With Sweet Peas!"

Pin It!

if they weren't so cute and perky, they'd be pest-y

Yes, I can smell them! I know 'Joy' is meant to smell like sweet peas, but there is nothing like the real thing.

I love sweet peas- we have them growing every year too- and yes, they do take everything over- but they are soo pretty! Your vignette is gorgeous. :)

Your sweet peas are gorgeous! I planted them last summer for the first time in years and would cut small bouquets for the kitchen windowsill. And, that was last August! We haven't even got leaves on the trees yet! I enjoyed your other recent posts as well. I love your new outdoor light! Blessings, Pamela
