my little sweet pea

Sweet Peas possess such delicious and delicate looking blooms... displaying vibrant bursts of colour along the countryside. How could anyone resist them? They practically beg with all their glory to be plucked from the roadside.

Today Mr. vG and I took a little detour after dropping my vehicle off for servicing. We decided to take the quiet back roads home, and to my delight, the wild sweet peas were in their prime. We couldn't not pull over for a small bouquet.

This is my Little Sweet Pea, Ava. I've called her "sweet pea" {not in front of her friends of course} since I can remember.... and now I can see the resemblance. She is delicate yet hardy, beautifully bright and irresistable. A treasure.

Happy Monday!

    I can't believe the sweet pea flower just grows in the wild by the side of the road. What a beautiful flower! Thanks for sharing with us.
    Have a wonderful 4th of July!
