Sweet Peas


By helpful fingers taught to twine
  Around its trellis, grew
A delicate and dainty vine;
The bursting bud, its blossom sign,
  Inlaid with honeyed-dew.
 
From Sweet Peas by Hattie Howard
 
I couldn't put it better myself.  The aroma of these late flowering sweet peas filled the kitchen.  All the more unexpected because I thought that they had finished flowering and was considering pulling them out of their planter.

What a lovely surprise from your garden! I LOVE sweet peas. We've not had them in ages. Perhaps next year... :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))
