Sweet peas and Pasternak

After Monday's day of reflection, Tuesday arrives ready to put some zing into our week. This photo is of scarlet sweet peas--my absolute favorite scented flower--I grew a couple of seasons ago.
Visit Mary's meme, Ruby Tuesday, for more r.e.d.


"Poetry is a rich, full-bodied whistle, cracked ice crunching in pails, the
night that numbs the leaf, the duel of two nightingales, the sweet pea that has
run wild, Creation's tears in shoulder blades.”
Boris Pasternak
