Really beautiful images Lula. I have to tell you, from your photo of yourself, every time I see it, I am reminded of my cousin Patricia. You look like her twin.

Hi Lula. Hope you're well!
I am fond of Lathyrus, whether they are cultivar or botanical, "pratensis" or as here "latifolius".

I found some really beautiful ones yesterday, in the french openfields.

A great climber, and with such a lovely fragrance !

Bonjour Gabriel, thanks for visiting! here there some gardens with lathyrus climbing up the fences and they are lovely, but I guess that in open fields they must be gorgeous!
