more sweet peas 'cause I sure do love them

This year I finally have what I would call a crop of sweet peas. I planted the seeds in a giant pot with a tee pee trellis thingy in the centre. I planted them early for sweet pea seeds love cool soil, I placed the pot in a sunny, sunny spot, I water religiously and often with rain water & miracle grow. I've given them lots of TLC and now they're givin' back. Stay tuned for more SP photo sessions. I love the colours, the tiny drooping beginning blossoms, the tangled climbing tendrils and oh that sweet pea scent, the scent is beyond heavenly.

At the end of day yesterday I finally had my chat with the awaited design director. It was a great conversation. Fantastic actually, perfect, more than I could ask for ... I will be spending the next 4 weeks putting together a presentation, a collection of new ideas. If all goes as planned and my presentation is accepted the creative & marketing elves will work with me to turn my creations into a complete product line. This designer gal can dream and I'm gonna keep on dreamin' large. Uh Huh ! Uh Huh !

I was talking to her on my cordless phone while outside strolling around the back tangled gardens of 29 Black Street and when I said goodbye and pressed the hang up button I danced around the yard and yipee-ed considerably. I could barely sleep last night I am so freakin' excited. Hooray ! hooray ! hooray ! Look out darn CE* 'cause here we come.
