Beloved Sweetpeas

Photo Taken March 1, 2007

March 12, 2008

I took this photo this morning after two Sweetpeas finally opened! The funk I have been in for two weeks has lifted! I don't know why the flowers are so late this year. Maybe the extra rain and wind we had this winter, or the mild temperatures? Now, I'm hoping they all will bloom and last until May.

My family and friends have waited patiently for their annual Sweetpea bouquets. I have tried to convince them to plant a few themselves, but they like having Mom deliver them daily. I love shopping the whole year for the perfect small vase, it has to be the right size, shape and color to complement the Sweetpeas. It is just as much fun finding the perfect vase as it is cutting the flowers!

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
