Twin I celebrated our birthday together by visiting 'The Red House'. Oh the gardens....
Whilst walking along one wonderful footpath the senses were awakened first by the most amazing scent and then the bright yellow of Mimosa.
I then read this passage in one of my birthday books.
'There was a barrow full of spring flowers just opposite.
'Oh, look, mimosa!' I exclaimed... 'I must have some.'
'I couldn't resist it,' I said. 'It makes one think....'
'Of Italy and the Riviera, of course.'
...'It's just that it seemed such a lovely day and I felt I wanted it.'
'Yes, that's a better reason.'Barbara Pym Excellent women
The coincidence of this, along with it being one of The colours this summer, loving the scent so much and having a lovely new phone I took a picture....
And then Rose posted about L'Artisan Parfumeur's scent Mimosa Pour Moi.
And so this post had to be written.
