My first job when I get to the beach is to pick the sweet peas. I have picked bouquet after bouquet and still there are more! What a summer of precious blooms, too many to even pick.

This is simply one of my favorite things to do in the whole world. And then to bring them in the house and experience their beauty and delicious fragrance, this is a little of heaven on earth.

WILD-GINGER-AT-THE-BEACH
I found these tiny glasses to match the Wild Ginger blooms for a sweet arrangement in my kitchen.

A weekend of weeding and the beach garden looks great!

I know that summer is almost here when I start cutting roses and bringing them inside for arrangements.

The Rhododendrons and Azaleas have just finishing their brilliant displays and the roses and sweet peas are beginning their exuberant splash of color and fragrance!

The buds are forming on my lavender at the beach.

Summer is a time of rich rewards with the splendor of flowers and lush verdant growth.

The first thing I do when I get to my beach house, even before I unpack the car or go inside, is to cut a bouquet of sweet peas for the house.

Here it is the end of September and they are still blooming prolifically and it seems that the cool fall air makes them even more fragrant!
