In a Vase on Monday
This week we have a very simple, small vase with just the one sweet pea stem in it. It may only be small, but it really can fill a room with its perfume. I’m glad it isn’t too strong as I suffer from small triggered-migraines, but it is enough that I can smell it. Perhaps I’m more sensitive to smells than most people because I always have to be aware of the possibility of a migraine.
I still love them anyway.
Not to worry, other vases will have more blooms in, just this week I only had the one open.

Oh Liz this is just so delicate and perfect. It seems sweet peas are very popular now….I wish mine had grown!
I do love my sweetpeas and have them most years because their perfume is just so incredibly nice. These were just grown in pots and without any canes or training, I’ve just allowed them to flop over and grow up anything they can find. Seem fine to me.
Good luck with any if you do try them again; they’re well worth it.
It’s a beautiful sweet pea! It so amazes me to see them at this time of year when mine were already history back in March.
Beautiful, as sometimes less is more!
simplicity is everything, beautiful.
I love the delicacy of sweet peas like this – thanks for sharing Liz
This sweetpea is beautiful and the vase is lovely (I’ve got some mini milk bottles). I’ve got some sweetpeas in my ‘other’ vase at the moment and yes I can smell them around the house too. It’s a blow that you get migraines though – big sympathy. I’ve got white, aqua and purple in my vase this week – quite restful.
The sweet pea is so delicate and lovely, I like the fine purple edge and frilly petals. I wish I could smell it as well.
