sweet peas~Today's Flowers 032710











My sweet peas have now started to grow and bloom. Some are over 7 feet tall! They are all growing along our 6' chain link fence, which serves as a dog run to keep our two dogs from going over by our neighbors, who don't appreciate them! The neighbors were supposed to take down their aging, sagging wooden fence and put up a brick wall, so we installed the chain link fence to keep the dogs safe while they started their work. They never did. I kind of like having most of our yard now "dog free". It has given me the opportunity to plant seeds along the chain link fence, like my sweet peas. I glanced out yesterday and noticed there were quite a few of them, enough for a cut bouquet, so out I went, armed with my scissors! And, here they are in their bouquet!

My gramps used to grow sweetpeas along his link fence, too. As I recall the flowers had a lovely fragrance?

These photographs are wonderful. I love sweet peas. They are a memory from childhood as my father planted them on a wooden trellis that separated his vegetable garden from the flower bed.

Sweet peas are so special. They bring back childhood memories of a water well at my grandmother's that was covered with them in the spring! Thanks for the memories.

Those are so beautiful. I haven't tried planting sweet peas in my garden but want to try this coming Spring. Lovely shots.

Have a nice day always.

Easier to clean up, when most of the yard is dog-free! I love the sweet peas! Are they fragrant?
