The gardens of my youth were fragrant gardens
and it is their sweetness
rather than the patterns of their furnishings
that I now most clearly recall.
~Louise Beebe Wilder~
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
