I wish to give a big thankyou to Dave (WhiteRose1) for his GEA and to Lavina (fificat100) for her UA on my Red Broom.

Walking with a friend on Hayling Island, we encountered a wild Everlasting Pea rambling over some fencing. It likes to use its twining tendrils to attach itself to something, to creep and climb, and is extremely vigorous. My friend told me to collect some of its long brown seedpods and plant the seeds in my garden and I would enjoy its clusters of pink creamy flowers for years to come.

She was right. Unlike the annual sweet pea, this wild flower will appear in abundance every year.
It has a typical pea-like structure, creamy flowers with pink-flushed upper petals, long-stalked clusters of 3-12 flowers, and narrow lance-shaped leaves with branched tendrils.

Pamela.

I know I spend more time looking at your backgrounds than at the subject, but when I painted in watercolours, 90% of the time went into getting the background right, I wish more people appreciated how important it is... Here the subdued blue is the perfect complementary colour - but it's the warm light in the corners that brings the image to life.
