Scent from Heaven



Perfumes are the feelings of flowers. 
-Heinrich Heine

We watch for pauses in the rain
to walk in showers of JOY


through the blossoms


sprinkled on the grass and plants

and 'round every corner is

the scent of heaven!


 Wishing you fragrant paths
and  Joy always,
~Maria

Sweet Spring Sprinkles these are! I love the picture of the petals, Maria. Your lilac is amazing, it reminds of the one we had in our garden back home. It had exactly the same color. The one in my garden is not that deeply colored but beautiful though!
We are getting ready for a few hot hot hot days, I will send some sunbeams across the Ocean to you my friend.
Have a happy lovely merry Thursday afternoon and evening o xx o
