Colour from the Season - Sweet Pea garden

In the language of flowers, Sweet Peas mean farewell. The name is believed to have been first used by the poet John Keats who wrote:

"Here are sweet peas, on tip-toe for a flight,
With wings of gentle flush o'er delicate white,
And taper fingers catching at all things,
To bind them all about with tiny rings"- 'I stood tip-toe upon a little hill' c.1817

These are the wonderful colours I sampled from them
for C, S, T, H & P with love xxxxx

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
