Sharon, again, a great and informative article. My grandmother kept a bottle of rose water on her dresser and I can remember the wonder fragrance. I think it was her only indulgence as far as vanity was concerned as she was such a rigid person and considere vanity not a good thing.
Thanks, I so so enjoy your article. Lee
You always make me smile, thank you.
Rose water on the dresser, and lavender in the drawers, that's what I remember. It wasn't that mine were so rigid, it's just all they had.
Thanks for writing.
Sharran, my I reciprocate in saying tha you make me smile by allowing me to remember things from my childhood which were pleasurable.
You have a natural ability in your writing that allows your readers to be right there in the setting.
I know China Berries are considered a invasive plant but that is another of my childhood memories, climbing the branches. Too, persimmons that were just delicious when perfectly ripe of course.
Keep us your articles. You do such a great job. Lee
thanks for this beautiful article. I can't think of anything that conjures up more memories than the sense of smell but especially in a rose. I enjoy all your articles & there's something especially sweet about this one! Have a wonderful day Sharon!
