Stargazer lilies are one of my favorite flowers. The scent that permeates its habitat is pleasant for the sniffer. I began buying these flowers after I returned from Venice. I feel as though a lot of these pictures have had some connection to Venice, perhaps I should consider returning to the place that has left such an imprint on my everyday life.
When we were in Venice, my aunt Linda and my adopted aunt Janey and I would go to a bar/restaurant just down from our apartment. As we walked in to the bar, the scent of fresh tulips filled the air. I loved this bar for its atmosphere, proximity, and service. I think I buy these flowers to trigger my sensory memory and try to go back for my Campari, Bellini, or Limoncello.
Unfortunately my flowers are dying and only a couple blossoms remain. I thought I'd capture the moment with another sense today, since I have yet to figure out how to attach a scent to my blog. My advice is to stop by the florist area at your local grocery store for a whiff of my Venice.
