it's the little things...

dainty sweet peas plucked from my summer garden.


these perennials have bloomed twice this season, despite the opressive heat..... and yes, oh my, their fragrant soft pink blooms are so beautiful to behold...but......



it is their delicate, curly little tendrils...ever reaching..... reaching.





that really fascinate me.


and one of the many reasons i love nature so very much.




and exploring the little things.

Magical, dear Erin. Beautiful photos! I adore the tendrils, too – so delicate but they command attention. I tried and failed this year to grow them from seed so will get seedlings next year.

Love sweet peas!
I remember I planted seeds as a little girl, in the house I grew up in. They grew so huge and so fast I thought they must be magic! These are such lovely images.
