Ailsa’s Travel Theme challenge on Where’s My Backpack? at http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/11/22/travel-theme-fragrant/ is Fragrant.
So many of life’s fleeting fragrances remind me of my early years back home in England. These pictures represent some of those happy memories.
A fragrant memory of roses after the rain as Mum and I walked to my grandmother’s house from the bus stop in Twickenham.
The fragrant odor of fresh-ground coffee beans that greeted us at the door of our favorite restaurant in Folkestone.
The perfume of lilacs in the Spring. Now, in May, I make my annual pilgrimage to Lilacia Park in Lombard, a perfect time to catch that delightful fragrance.
Leaves; not just leaves but burning leaves. That wonderful smell of autumnal garden bonfires.
