Sweet Peas

The  first of the sweet peas are flowering. Sreamers is the name  of this variety..   Blossoms are streaked with white  and come in mauve,chocolate,orange , blue , pink ,purple and red......so far only the mauve but there is a bud that looks like deep red.... This sweet pea is considered a trailer but it is climbing my trellis with only a little help from twine...

Made a little arrangement to sit by my bedside. Added white astilbe and some of the astilbe leaves.




The fragrance is   filling   the room.......so strongly scented.
I was so worried about planting too early   I can see  by all the  buds  it was the right time.

Love fresh peas. I also like to bring in some of the unusual flowers and some herbs inside to freshen up the house.
