Today I'm joining along with Barbara and her Simple Monday theme which is always a joy to read.
Its the simple things in life which can sometimes bring you the most happiness and contentment ,
sharing a cup of tea with a friend, reading a book,(finding the time to read it) spring cleaning the house, finishing a project (however small) or receiving a cup of tea in bed. ( you can tell I like a cuppa)
I find smells can trigger simple joys and memories.
Mint brings back wonderful memories of holidays at the seaside as a young girl, camping in the old bungalow in grandma's backyard, playing with my sisters & brother , climbing down rocky paths to the sea below,
finding treasure's in the sand, shells and driftwood.
At night the smell of mint growing along the bungalow walls would drift in through the window on the sea breeze..................
A mint bush planted on the edge of a path in the veggie path is a daily reminder of special times!!
While in Italy I was given beautiful Shampoo and soaps made with organic Olio Di Oliva (olive oil)
and once a week I wash my hair and remember the smells and experiences of my exciting trip only such a short time ago!!!
What smells bring to you a special memory?
