Roadside Beauty

Forever Pea, Haywood County, NC  -  2013
(Click on photo to enlarge.)

A common sight along the roadsides in Haywood County, and other western NC counties, are groups of pink flowers, the Forever Pea. They start appearing in June, and usually last into early September. They are just one of many colorful wildflowers that grace our area in the summer months, but this may be my favorite.

  1. Beautiful.
    I think Sweet Peas are one of my favorites. Their fragrance is intoxicating.
    Never saw them wild before. NC must be gorgeous.
