We love mid June for it's when the sweet peas bloom. They're not planned or planted but rather they grow and bloom where they want -- sometimes even in the herb garden. Mostly, they're that purply pink but occasionally, there will be a white one. They're the flower of choice for bouquets as long as they bloom.
They're a wild sweet pea rather than one of the cultivars and they have no fragrance. But that's really unimportant for they are very very special sweet peas. They came from husband Jim's grandmother's garden eons and eons ago -- before she left her home to go to a nursing home, a start came to Linderhof.
The fun of these sweet peas is the fact that they appear here and there -- they have no planned space and we love the bright spots of color that they provide in the garden. And we love the fact that every June, we fondly remember Grandma Eva because we see her sweet peas bloom.
It's Saturday which means that it's Pink Saturday so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see what other pinks there are this Satuarday!
