Delicate Curve

"Here are sweet-peas, on tip-toe for a flight:
With wings of gentle flush o'er delicate white,
And taper fingers catching at all things,
To bind them all about with tiny rings."
John Keats
English Romantic poet. 1795-1821

Love the Sweet Peas, Diane. My mother used to have them---but I haven't seen them much in years. SO pretty!!!

Thanks!
