The Sweetest Sweet Peas

July 27, 2012

20120727-074253.jpg The Market stalls have had just the prettiest little bunches of sweet peas. These delicate flowers just speak to me of Summer. As with most flowers, I prefer just a simple arrangement of one color. I think you really get to enjoy the singular beauty of each stem that way, as you are seeing multiples of the same variety. The sweetly scented white sweet peas working perfectly tucked into a display at the Inn at the Market shop. We have the Sicilian monk in the 17th century, Franciscus Cupani, to thank for these lovelies, as he sent the seeds to England, where they were crossbred, creating the sweet pea.

A happy Friday to all, and cheers to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games!
