Sweetie Pea
Oh I love this time of year! The flower markets are just starting to bud with all my favourites blooms. I have a penchant for the old fashioned favourites - the flowers that are just so pretty all on there own. I just adore sweet peas - at first glance they are so delicate with their perfectly formed ruffles, they are however surprisingly robust, and hold their form and freshness remarkably well even out of water - the perfect bridal bouquet solution. Thinking of them I can't help but fondly remember the little sweet pea plantation I shared with my grandfather, each year we would sow the seeds together, and like magic the most amazing display would appear after a little TLC. In fact that would have been where my passion for flowers was first enjoyed.
