Discover Prompts, Day 15: Scent

Whoever chose this prompt and set up the page put a picture of a field of lavender under the heading. I love lavender, and it’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt word. Here’s my own choice:

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Organic Essential Oil – St Larry's

I don’t remember when discovered lavender. I’ve enjoyed it for years now, especially in soaps, bath oils and bubbles, etc.

Some think it’s annoying and old-fashioned. I don’t want to be annoying, but I don’t mind being old-fashioned. I’ve reached an age at which I actually take it as a compliment!

What other scents do I love? Baking bread. Beef roasting in the oven. Roses in the garden. Rain. Freshly cut grass. A freshly bathed and powdered baby. Freshly aired, clean rooms. Tea. Any kind. There are some that are so aromatic I wish there were a perfume to match 🙂 Coffee. Bacon. Coffee and bacon cooked outside.

Laundry drying outside. Freshly plowed earth, BEFORE the farmer spreads the manure 🙂 Fresh corn as it’s being husked.

Well, my list is long, so I’ll stop there. I notice how often the word fresh shows up. Interesting. I know I don’t like stale and stuffy!
