Orange Blossom...

Postby stellastaff » Thu Mar 01, 2007 9:50 pm

It's the 1st of March and I have already detected the delightful fragrance of orange blossom wafting through my lounge! It is the one thing that screams 'SPRING' to me here! I love it!:D

As I drive along the A357 around this time of year, the orange groves that line the roadside are alive with blossom and the fragrance that comes from it is divine to say the least.

Does anyone else share my love? Do you have a fragrance/sound/sight that puts a silly grin on your face? I am sure this will get some strange replies, but hey, bring it on!!! :lol:

I love the smell of vanilla body spray, bergamot orange, cloves and cinnamon.

Sunrises and sunsets are high on the list of my favourite sights.

And the sound of waves crashing onto the beach is music to my ears 8)

I think it all started when they tarmaced the playground at primary school. Now I find myself hanging round watching ruddy faced navies flattening "The Black Stuff".

But that's another story.

That's better than hanging around primary schools though. :lol:

MHIC...nice sight

My favorite sight is my baby's smile when he wakes up in the morning...my 4yr old just glares at me then throws the duvet over her head!

My least favorite smell is my baby when he wakes up in the morning :? :? :?

the smell of a hot engine, especially if using 'Castrol R' oil.

the sound of a Ferrari V 12 Formula one engine at full throttle.
