This wall of sweetpeas put out enough fragrance to be smelled from 50 yards away if the wind was right. Not to mention it was a show-stopper that made everyone who passed by ask about. Don't even try planting these at any other time in Louisiana besides late Oct - early Nov. They just can't take the heat that arrives in May.

Some Things Make Me Want To Cry
Last year at this time, I had a wall of sweetpea's growing on one area of my chainlink fence. After they finished, I planted some morning glories in the same place. Because these morning glories were still going strong in late October and early November when sweetpeas should be planted, I didn't pull them out and plant some more sweetpeas in the spot. Now I'm really regretting not having any sweetpeas as I see the bare area of fence and remember the beauty and fragrance that was there last year. The following pictures from last year just make me wanna' cry!
