I'm sitting in the living room in Canada, smelling the sweet fragrance of beautiful deep pink lilies. These are the same lilies my daughter had at her wedding - a simply gorgeous flower:
In our garden in Mexico we have some sweet flowers too. The scent wafts around the front terrace and is a delightful greeting when we come home.
We have hundreds of other plants in the garden, some flowering, some foliage. The earthy smell of soil and plants and sun and water is rich. Small lizards and birds use the garden as their playground.
Right now it's snowing outside. I won't be here when it happens, but I know everyone in Canada is ready for spring. Canada in April/May is full of fragrance from the garden too - tulips, hyacinths, peonys, magnolia, flowering shrubs. Ahhh...I can smell it now.
