Sweet Pea Festival

Hello followers and new visitors! Welcome to the Sweet Pea Festival on John's Island. Yes, the peas have finally bloomed. We planted the peas back in early March and here is how they looked in mid-April ...

and then in June in the pots with green checks ...

and now, here are some of the blooms in early July ...

Sweet peas are kinda hard to photograph. Well, they are really small, and they move around with the slightest breeze. Also, you need a lot of good sunshine to really bring out their beauty.

Although I think sweet peas are pretty, I think their fragrance is even better! You are missing something if you have not enjoyed the fragrance of a bouquet of these flowers!

Thanks for stopping by the Island. Hope you are all having a fine summer!
