Glass of Sweet Peas

Sweet peas are climbing plants that bear clusters of flowers in a wide variety of colors including red, pink, blue, white, and lavender.  Sweet pea flowering time occurs during different seasons based on where you reside. Areas with cooler summer temperatures can expect flowers in late spring into fall. Whereas, those living in warmer regions can expects flowers in winter and spring.



Central Florida has two growing seasons – warm season and cool season.  The heat and humidity of summer and fall prohibits growing many plants that do well in northern climates in the summer.  Central Florida’s best growing season is between October and late spring.




A friend gave me a handful of sweet peas that she likes to grow during the winter.   I put them in a glass in the window.  They’re so cheerful.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. That’s interesting about Florida’s growing season. The sweet peas are very pretty. My father used to grow them and had a whole trellis work on one side of his garden full of these little beauties.

  2. Oh, sweet peas – how gorgeous is that! I think I can notice the scent. Wishing a happy Sunday & new week to come.

  3. The sweet peas are such soft and poetic flowers. It would be hard not to like these colors. Happy you shared them with All Seasons! i noticed you are given flowers quite regularly:) Have a great week.

  4. Sweet peas are one of my very favorites and I long for the day my huge sweet pea bush (well, it looks like a bush once it starts growing!) will return. June can’t come soon enough!

    1. It’s nice to know yours come back each year. I reaaly should get some next year. I like things that return.

  5. Your pink Sweet Peas are so pretty, Carol. I can’t grow them here as the rabbits and deer eat them. It seems like Florida was the only state to stay warm in the arctic blast last week.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
