The weekend is so close I can actually smell it...ahhhhhhh
Actually smells, as we all know, evoke memories like no other sense. Obviously it's way better than this mushy gray stuff I call a brain...lol
Are there smells, odors or fragrances that bring wonderful memories or just smell so good that all the rest of the world, along with the pain, vanishes for a few sweet moments?
Being that this is spring it's easy for me. Outside the front door are two huge planters, one on either side, that I plant with flowers each year. But down deep in them are hyacinth bulbs and they are just beginning to bloom. Oh My Goodness! The fragrance is so wonderful I just close my eyes and inhale. I can smell them over 50' away and love it. Even have hummingbirds eating from them for the past 2 weeks. When they die down I poke nasturtium seeds in between the bulbs and they grow and bloom all summer, but then the following early spring the hyacinths poke up and entertain me with their wonder. Soon to follow are the lilacs and, and, and...
What smells do you like?
