I have 3 random photos to share with you today . . . Thanks to…
So listen. I today’s post all planned. And then yesterday Vera talked about learning two new words:
And I have to admit, those are two great words and also two of my most favorite scents. I almost decided to talk about those scents and try and come up with a 3rd that has a unique word to describe it. But, in the end, I decided to stick with my original plan: 3 scents I am loving in my garden right now.
- Basil. There is nothing better than the smell of fresh cut basil. It’s herby and clean and I adore it. My friend Doreen has always said that if she’s ever in a coma (goddess forbig) to stick a big bunch of basil under her nose and it will wake her right up.
- Lavender. I always plant a container of lavender for my deck and I always put it right next to where I sit. I love to run my fingers through it and then inhale that gorgeous scent as it wafts over me. It’s floral but not overpowering (like lilacs) and it instantly relaxes me.
- Geraniums. I have a friend who doesn’t care for the scent of geraniums, he thinks they smell like dirt. And to that I say, what’s wrong with that?! I love that green floral scent that comes through my windows from the boxes hanging from them outside. I often dead head my geraniums by lifting the screens and snapping off the spent blossoms and that, too, releases their clean and earthy scent.
I hope you are enjoying the scents of the season! If you wrote a post for today, please include your link below.
