Down here in Australia (where our seasons are reversed from Europe and America), Spring is just around the corner, and already there are signs that she is close at hand. As I lie in bed, or sit on my verandah, I inhale a heavenly bouquet, and it fills me with hope and renewal.
The heavy fragrance of mock orange (Philadelphus) floods the air.
There is a sweeter, lighter note, which is the flowering Meyer Lemon at my kitchen door.
The heady scent of Jasmine lingers strongly at the close of day…
And my favourite springtime treat, the Magnolia’s rich fragrance, reaches far into the evening.
Spring certainly seems to be spreading more energy than just perfume. There is romance in the air too, all around my little farm. So much to be grateful for. Hooray for Spring! ♥
