In Praise of Perfumed Gardens

15 Sep

Spring is really here, and I cannot resist strolling around the streets, looking at the gardens.

Amongst the most beautiful colours are the lilac shades of wisteria. Moments ago, I passed an old-fashioned house, resplendent with all the favourite blooms of yesteryear, but dominated by one: wistaria.

As if its heady perfume was not enough, interspersed amongst its tendrils were clusters of fragrant jasmine: announcing Spring so vividly that I defy anyone with a sense of time, place and charm to ignore it.

In the lawn, old-world freesias bloomed, strewn around as if by nature.

Ah, Spring: the season of the senses!
