In a Vase on Monday: Sweet Pea Sweetness on a Pot

I’ve missed a few “In a Vase on Monday” memes, so even though it is 11:40 P.M.  I am sneaking in with my post!  You can join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, and all those who have linked to her blog,  to see what everyone has gathered from her garden this week.  Here’s the link: https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2015/08/03/in-a-vase-on-monday-xtravaganza/

I was having a little bit of fun with this.  You know, sweet smelling flowers on a potty chair! 🙂

I love the evening sunlight coming into our front hallway.

My Father-in-law started these from seeds he’d collected from my plants last year.  Phew, did you get that?  He gave them to me in cute little pots that were supposed to be planted right away… Eventually we got to planting them in the ground!  So my plants are very late.  I’ve been cutting them now in the hopes of bringing on more flowers.  We’ll see!

My vase of Sweet Peas was even more full last week!  I loved how they kind of flopped all around in the vase, so I used the same vase this week.

Last week I had the vase in our back room.  The scent really does fill the room!

What’s growing in your garden this week that you can throw into a vase? I’d love to see it!

Happy Monday!

  1. Lovely ‘pot’ of sweet peas. Do you know which variety they are? They are very like the Purple Pimpernel I have, which are grown from seed saved last year as I enjoyed them so much then. They are still flowering on long stems, unlike other sweet peas. After seeing your potty chair I need to do a ramble around the house at other potential props that could be used… Thanks for sharing.
