SWEET SEPTEMBER SATURDAYS

Ahhhhhhhhhh – September Saturdays with still a hint of summer.


Moments when warm breezes tease and invite
a long lean finger reaching though open windows.


sitting on that finger of a breeze

that beckons me out of my home –


a sweet aroma wafts into the rooms of my house-
winding its way into the kitchen, through the living room, toward my study, up the stairs...

a sweet aroma mesmerizing me.


What is it that fills my senses with sweetness, floats over my garden attaching itself to each molecule of air?

AAAAAAAAh – so sweet, so invinting.


I wake to its smell. Its scent joins my daily chores. Outside I sit reading with its fragrance dancing around me, enhancing the words I read. Even in the dark of night its tiny bouquet brings my dreams to life. 

Tiny flower - small but significant, changes the way I experience my day.


Her name is Sweet Almond Verbena (Aloysia virgata)

Thanks Van. We have some of these plants growing in our back yard but didn't know the name.
