Everlasting Pea Vine

Wild sweet peas

Wild sweet peas

I’ve always called these wild flowers “sweet peas,” but unlike garden varieties, they do not have a sweet scent and they do not come in an array of pastel colors.  I think another name for them is everlasting pea vines.  They grow wild in our yard and I especially like how they turn bluish as they move past their prime.

    I enjoy your blog so much, Rosemary. Today I received an email from another blog I recently started following and thought you might be interested in what she has to say about painting sweet peas: http://annamasonart.com/how-to-paint-a-bright-rounded-3d-petal-in-watercolour

      Thank you. Yes, I am familiar with Anna Mason’s blog. She’s an excellent botanical artist.
