with joyous perfume

  1. Beautiful – I can almost smell it! I went to a greenhouse over the weekend and the whole place smelled like petunias. It made me want to live there.

  2. Such a beautiful flower..each one is special in its own right…some have fragrances that linger while others are colorful and bold, then there are the ones that have a quiet beauty..admired by those who discover it…

  3. One of my favourite flowers..they evoke such wonderful memories of all my mother’s gardens and all of mine.. Have a wonderful summer. Only 3 more months till spring, here, when petunias will light up our lives once more..

  4. Ah, when I saw the title I thought you were writing about Blatter’s resignation Jean 🙂 I’m not a flower person but even I am impressed with the showing in this early summer.

  5. A little off topic, but poetry-wise, I wanted to tell you that Emory University (in Atlanta Georgia) is having a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Yeats’ birth on June 13, and a related museum exhibit — “The Waters and the Wild: Alen MacWeeney Photographs of Ireland” will be on view along with Yeats material from Emory’s Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library.

  6. Sandy, thanks very much for telling me.
    There’s huge hype here in Ireland about his 150th anniversary. I’m delighted it’s taking off around the world as he’s such a favourite of mine.
