A Ring of King Tuts!

Here is my hand compared to the blooms of the 'King Tut' sweet peas Lathyrus sativus.  It says on the seed packet that they reach up to 3 feet and are adaptable to both cool and hot regions.  They aren't fragrant, but boy, aren't they cute?  You can purchase seeds from Territorial Seed Company in Oregon state.
I cut them so they would continue to bloom.  I put them in a shot glass for this photo!  Gardening is so enjoyable, isn't it?  Had a hot and muggy day.  The Herbal Husband watered and that brought the rain!  He can't seem to wait!  Loves his plants!  Hope you had a good day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later!

I've been watering today too and I certainly hope it brings the rain. We are so hot and dry here.

Too cute. I have a fence outside my kitchen window at the new place. I should try sweet peas there next year.

BTW - speaking of the new place.... I found the Penzey's Herb place is just around the corner! I can hardly wait to get settled so I can stock up!
