Sweet Pea

One of my favourite flowers is the sweet pea, but I have not had much  luck growing them in my back yard. Unusual I think, as most people I know grow them without any trouble:(

This lovely beauty is from Doodle Pantry and what a glorious flower it is. It also comes with a daffodil, see here.
