Intoxication, elevation,

tintillated senses on a garden morning tour.

Pink scentsation, sweet libation,

inhalation heals the heart, and ushers in its cure.


Sweet peas have got to be one of the most delightful scents in the garden world!!

    I abhor sweetpeas. But that’s because I used to be called it when I was a kid and hate it now lol

    Oh I’m LOVING this–the photo almost wafts the perfume, and I love your verse. Very, very wonderful, Melody! God bless you–love, Caddo

      Thank you my friend. I wish I could send the perfume your way – they smell SOOOO good!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I never see “sweet peas” listed as the fragrance on any bath products, perfume–is it because it’s mild, or that it can’t be easily extracted, preserved for manufacturing?

      • melodylowes says:

        The Body Shop has a line of sweet pea products – but I find it a bit strong, and not as sweet as the real deal. I have wondered that, too – there must be some reason that it isn’t very popular!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Hmm, the Body Shop–I’ll have to sniff that out, if I can find it in the few places I shop!

    So transparent, so delicate and such a lovely colour. Really beautiful picture.

    I never knew what they looked like, Melody . beautiful and then they smell good too? Yay! We get sweet pea body wash and it makes the whole bathroom smell wonderful! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Just walking by the sweet peas is a treat – the air is spiced with their beautiful fragrance – and yes, they are beautiful in their own right, too! This year’s colours aren’t quite as fabulous as lasts – must have been a different packet of seed or something – but still very lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Melody, would love to walk in your garden, though what you share is always such a blessing. Got a question for you…are your pics always photos or sometimes watercolor?

    • melodylowes says:

      Early on I was posting some of my watercolours – but lately these are all photos. Lots of painting inspiration there, though – I have been thinking of trying some painting again..
