Re: Sweet Pea

Super set of images there Paul - still waiting for ours to burst forth. This fine weather will certainly help.

Re: Sweet Pea

Beautiful Paul. Impossible to pick a favourite from this trio.
Mine are about 6 ins high but on their way.
Always a joy to photograph.
Many years ago, in an antique shop, I spied a silver vase especially designed to hold sweet peas - it had a special insert to hold their fine stems in place. I couldn't afford the purchase at the time - other priorities as a young wife, and reluctantly left it in the shop.
I have never seen one since anywhere, and every year when the sweet peas bloom, I think of that vase.
