Top Heavy

We've had hot Santa Ana winds for three days now. It's nice that the winds clean out all the dead leaves...unless all your neighbors leaves end up in your yard. Daisy and I were sweeping up those leaves and then I saw...
The sweet peas...
Of course, someone felt the nice smelling flowers were at her level now. 
I looked pretty silly trying to stand it up because it is soooooo heavy!!  I have it temporarily propped up now.  
I guess it's time to think about building a more stable trellis! 


  1. I remember dose hot Santa Ana winds from when I lived in California - dey can be pretty strong.

    It were real windy here in Texas today too - da door even blew open when my momma went outside to take a picture!

  2. how sweet peas....maybe you need to attach the trellis to the wall?

  3. I likes ta smell da flowerz, too, Daisy!
