what plants tell from us

I couldn’t resist getting a bunch of Mimosa from the florist’s.

I spotted it at once amongst the buckets filled with multicoloured flowers, but none matching the powerfull yellow and strong fragrance of mimosa. I was propped back with sudden momentum to  my childhood in Provence – dry rocky landscape, mesmerizing blue sky and bold sun in the heart of winter, the walks in the hills, the many smells emanating from brushing past rosemary or treading on  low growing hardy clumps of thyme. And hedges full of mimosa, you can sense them from far away, even before you turn the winding path and then see it in full bloom…

Sweet experience.
