Who cannot help but smile warmly when enjoying the intense aroma and vibrant hues of the magnificent sweet pea? Walking through the flower market I spotted two whole shelves of the fluttering butterfly like blossoms of goodness! Sweet peas are actually a member of the pea family and are native to Italy. Did you know that these annual blossoms can climb upwards of 6 feet? The colors range from: white, pink, red, violet, and purple. Enjoy yourselves some sweet pea images!
