The day began with 3.5 inches of rain in 2 hours, with too much of it seeping into our entire basement. Cleanup and drying out is well underway. Unexpected was the relief at purging- good for the soul.
The rain and humidity delighted our scented garden and we were rewarded with Lady of Shalott roses (they smell a bit like tea, but richer with hints of clove and apple),
gardenia buds unfolding with their amazing scent
and a jasmine sambac plant that is covered with buds about to burst.
Life is good!
We’ll be smelling these on Sunday as part of Indigo Perfumery’s Mix Your Own Floral Workshop.
