Heavenly Scent

Errands in the local town this morning.
Thundering at the moment as rain comes in.

I saw them and the scent - always pleases me.
Usually wait until after Christmas and find
a pot on sale.

Looking at them the clerk stepped up
and I commented how I liked them
but too expensive.

She said "if you would like them I will mark them half price."

I replied "you will do this?"

So they were purchased
and I put them in my bedroom on my desk.

Narcissus Paper Whites
they smell heavenly...

A Christmas present
to myself.....
Baking a cake soon
and not planning on leaving the woods
until next week.

My idea of Heaven...

One kind act can make such a difference. Every time you smell that scent you will remember this gift.

That was so sweet of the clerk to do that for you.

I love that picture of your desk with the paper whites and I see some hearts too.

I would stay in your woods too. I'm staying here in our little haven until I have to go to work. I love being at home.

Love and hugs to you dear Ernestine.

Lovely thought, lovely gift, lovely price.

I bought myself this large pot of daisies with a tiny poinsettia in
the middle. Something about flowers.

Though given my druthers I would have chosen narcissi.

I'm hunkering too, Ernestine, let's keep in touch.

It is soooo cosy...

Love this, and hats off to the clerk... My Christmas gift to myself this year was a Red Lion amaryllis - on sale in my local market.
