The last sweet pea

The last sweet pea

'Heirloom Cupid' (I think). Photo taken August 1st.

This sweet pea tolerated the heat wave better than I did, with less drooping and wilting. It's the last summer flower from my balcony garden and I'm determined to keep it fresh and pink as long as possible so I've been storing it in the fridge. This evening I've placed it on my desk while I work on the computer. Delicate, elegant, graceful -- if this beautiful sweet pea didn't already have a name I would call it Audrey Hepburn.
