Favourite Friday: Flowers and Seasons

Welcome back to the second edition of “Favourite Friday”.  As the weather outside is not really summer like yet, and the sky is more grey than blue, how about something nice?

Favourite Flowers: white roses, and I like green plants like ivy and fern, they give me such a nice feeling with their barely noticeable earthy aroma and a notion of fantasy worlds. Generally I prefer blossoming trees (Japanese cherry trees, apple tree blossoms) and wild flowers (e.g. corn flowers) over blooming plants inside, because too many smells combined in a confined space make me uncomfortable.

Favourite Seasons: late summer and the European equivalent to Indian summer. The times when the air and the soil exhale a soft, warm, slightly dusty breath and a faint aroma of hay, the trees are full of leaves and maybe a glint of fire in the sun. Deep blue skies. Happiness. The times when I long to run through open fields. Our church wedding will be in the mid of September this year, could there be a better time?

Tell me about flowers/plants and seasons that make me happy, please?
