Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea flowering in late august.

It’s the end of August and there is a subtle tang of autumn in the air here. Early in the morning and as the sun sinks, you can feel it. Not too close, not too far. On her way in her own good time.

But an (accidental) sweet pea in our garden hasn’t taken any notice. The shortening days and cooling nights don’t bother her. She’s started flowering – defiantly, unexpectedly, and beautifully.

  1. I think sweet peas are just gorgeous. But for some reason, I’ve never had any luck growing them. Do you do anything special to the seeds before you plant?
