Fill Your Life with Fragrance

Take a pause in your busy day and breathe in the fragrance of flowers


“Which is loveliest in a rose? Its coy beauty when it’s budding, or its splendor when it blows?” ~ George Barlow


“The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I’m taking more chances; I’m bold and proud.” ~ Paula Cole


“A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.” ~ Chinese proverb


“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.” ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.” ~ Author unknown


“Be the flower that gives its fragrance to even the hand that crushes it.”
~ Ali ibn Abi Talib

Maybe we should all be like flowers.

    I love flowers! I think I have to stop and smell them. I used to breathe into trees and I love the smell of freshly cut grass.

    This was a great post to start the day with!
    I think the olfactory senses (and memories) are under-appreciated sometimes. I notice and feel fragrances, scents, constantly. Not only sweet flowers of course, and all the other poetic sources (rain, fresh-mown grass) but also the smell of the earth, the waft of gasoline, the tannic waters of the swamp.
    Often, smells will take me instantly to a time and place. My dad’s shop, my mother’s kitchen, the attic of my childhood home.
    Indeed, one must appreciate all the fragrances of a truly aromatic world.

    Seek peace,
