Scents and Sensibility

cr_roses-gallery

Fragrances can enchant us with their immediate presence. Bring a bouquet of roses into the dining room or brush against a lemon verbena plant. These scents instantly brighten your spirit and perfume the air. Fragrances can evoke memories from years gone by: the scent of bayberry at Christmas time, or the pungent aroma of fresh basil in July.

We delight in the sweet and spicy aroma of herbs- potpourri, sachets, tiny pillows, bath waters, sprigs of fresh mint added to the tea pot. To be alive is to find your passion and pursue it with all your heart. How blessed I am. It’s nice to be back at the blog. I’ve missed everyone.
