“Miss Sweet Pea” is an original acrylic painting on canvas panel measuring 5″x7″. She is the nineth in a series of elegantly dressed fairy cats wearing flowers as hats!
Sweet Peas are the birth month flower for April.
“Under the sweet-peas I stood
And drew deep breaths, they smelt so good.
Then, with strange enchanted eyes,
I saw them change to butterflies.
Higher than the skylark sings
I saw their fluttering crimson wings
Leave their garden-trellis bare
And fly into the upper air.
Standing in an elfin trance
Through the clouds I saw them glance…
Then I stretched my hands up high
And touched them in the distant sky.”
~ Alfred Noyes, “A Child’s Vision”
