Today my sweet peas bloomed. It was a special day for me. I grew my sweet peas from seed from the garden that my grandmother and great-grandmother tended.
Sweet Peas come in both annual and perennial varieties. It’s true that the annuals are showier vis a vis color and fragrance, but the so-called “Everlasting Pea” comes back bigger and better every year.
I have the perennial variety. It is also more tolerant of the heat and humidity of a Southern Ohio summer.
And my bees love it!!
I hope someday to pass down seeds to my daughter and granddaughter. It will truly be an Everlasting Pea.
