sweet pea blooms

My sweet peas are flowering! For several weeks already now.
So pretty, although I don't notice the lovely scent I remember from my childhood.
Perhaps that was a different variety.
I like the way they peek over the retaining wall- next year (if they come back) hope to train them to do so better (most are still flopping all over the place).
They're up against my neighbor's little garden. Attracting lots of bees.
I also kind of like how some of them wind up through the stiff gladiola foliage (which is in gorgeous bloom right now, need to get a picture of that, too!) although it looks like some of the sweet pea vines have smothered a few gladiola on one end.
