The Sweetest Sweet Peas

June 29, 2011

Vashon Island has many organic farms, and most of them have little farm stands set up, so you can drop by at any time and buy produce and many sell bunches of flowers. One of our very favorite to stop at is Island Meadow. Arriving late on Saturday evening means we miss out on quite a bit of the produce, as most of the growers sell at the Saturday Market on the island. When we arrived this Saturday night, there was just one lone bunch of sweet peas. But I was completely taken with the color. The flowers carry such an old fashioned feel to them, with their fluttering blossoms and intense scent. I knew we had just the right vintage glass beaker back at the house that would allow them to shine.
