"sniff, sniff, cough" oh, love that smell.. "sniff sniff"
Anybody who has ever walked through the Orange groves know that sniff-lee reaction I am referring to.. The pungent aroma is wonderful, awesome, and a smell you don't want to forget.
The small little blossoms pack a big perfumed smell. In the evening hours the aroma is even stronger with a bit of moisture in the night air. Before I moved to Florida I had often smelled orange blossom cologne, or perfume.. I believed that the orange groves must smelled like that.. Not so, nothing man made can really capture the beautiful smell of a orange tree in full bloom. A bloom,a blossom, preparing to become a luscious orange fruit.
I spent some time walking the shopping streets at Wiregrass. Looking at the lovely flowers in bloom and the pleasant feel of the outdoor shopping. I have never been to fond of a mall setting and this is just a great place to browse.
As I am preparing to return to West Virginia soon , I find myself checking out all the different blooms and flowering colors . I'm wondering what would grow in the cooler climate, and just what I see here in Florida I would like to take with me. Plants and flowers to place in the beautiful yard and grand front porch of the company store known as Whipple.
