    Beautiful colour – and I can almost smell the scent! Sweet peas are among my favourite flowers, but I have had very limited success growing them in Egypt. That said, I have come across two nursery gardens in and around Cairo where they flourish. I don’t know what the secret is!

    I did not know what Holy Island was, so of course I had to look it up. I am in awe. I cannot imagine the wonder of seeing these sweet peas in such a place. Thank you for ever more education!

      It is a remarkable place and the long sandy drive to get there makes it appear more so. In context, it is tempting to make some kind of connection between a cloistered life (of the sweet peas, growing gloriously towards the heavens on a frame of string) and the freedom of the other flowers clustered together in the garden below, were it not for the fact that the sweet peas look so wistful.

        Not just tempting, but mandated. You’d HAVE to make that connection in that context! All the more beautiful. I’m imagining that long sandy drive and it’s wonderful.
