Clarriemont,

THANK YOU! Very nice read today.

I really love QAL! It was nice to read the history.

Isn't there just something about the sway dance in the breeze?

...hmmm, thinking I will have to try the dye some one suggested!

Anyways, I enjoyed your article. smiling too!

Thank you for your comments, and I like your name. (And mine's not Clarriemont, it's Carrie Lamont, but who's counting?) Thank you for your mysterious smiles.

Wonderful info! Here is a pic of the field next to us, and they stretch as far as the eye can see! The fragrance is heavenly--I stood in the middle of them all and just deeply inhaled...mmmm!

And it is my belief that the fragrance is not the FLOWERS but the FOLIAGE. How curious! I'll bet that field was mowed at some point. . .

Thanks for writing!

Really? I never thought of that--I will have to sniff the leaves next time! And yes, it was mowed and is well fertilized. They used to keep cattle.

The fragrance from the foliage (I love carrots, I should mention) is so lovely I never have noticed any from the flowers themselves, at least from MINE!

Hi, again, Carrie! I just smelled some again today, and the flower is fragrant, and yes, the leaves, too. I want to gather some for an arrangement and try food coloring. I read that they do like carnations do and turn colors from it.

I love the smell myself - it's no surprise they're related to herbs and carrots and so on. Thanks for your comment!
