Sharing Life

DSCN5710-1

Forsythia

Heather in her post “Sharing Life” yesterday asked three questions:

1. What are your favorite fragrant flowers to pick and gather into your home?

Sorry to say, I cannot have fragrant flowers indoors because I’m allergic. I do have flowering plants indoors, for the joy of the eye - but only the kinds that do not give off much fragrance or pollen.

2. What sounds bring joy to your heart?

Sounds of running water and birds greeting spring after a long, hard winter.

3. Tell me something that you once thought and have now learned differently about.

What comes to mind just now is only the very general statement that when I was young, I thought life would get easier as I got older. It’s a long time since I grew out of that belief.

I'm so glad that you played along with me! I always enjoy reading the answers to questions....so sorry that you're allergic to that beautiful fragrance our flowers give, but I understand.

We were talking last night at the dinner table about this...my oldest was very irritated by the lilacs on the table - his eyes were hurting because of them being so close.

I wondered if it was the pollen from the flowers that bothered him or the pollen from the trees that we're allergic to, left upon the flowers...hmmm.

I like your window flowers photo the best...and agree with the water and birds of Spring :)

I love that picture of the beautiful flowers! Well, I'll try to answer all three. I don't pick flowers to bring inside, can't bear to kill them. I like to leave them where they are happily blooming. Joy to my heart, the song of birds and the uninhibited laughter of little children. Something I used to believe in and don't now. Many things, because I'm pretty old and a bit wiser.

I go along with the running water and birds. That might well be on my list.
