Scents

On our walk today we came upon a yard filled with heirloom rose bushes.  I can never resist sniffing a rose so we had to stop as I took in the scent of a pale pink, tea rose. It was divine. The large and sprawling bush was in full bloom so I plucked a rose as a souvenir. I could not put it down for a second as we continued the walk.  A block or so away and the sweet smell of honeysuckle made me stop. I spotted the vine trailing up a tree and picked some honeysuckle to pair with the rose. The resulting fragrance was one I wish I could be bathed in, soft and sweet. Nothing man made can ever come close. I must have been a bee in a past life. They could be heard buzzing away in the flowering trees above us, in love with their flowers.

My Favorite Flower Scents:
Rose
Honeysuckle
Gardenia
Wisteria
Maid-of-Orleans Jasmine
Freesia
Narcissus

What are yours?
