Earlier this month, I went to Brigg’s Nursery in North Attleboro, MA to adopt a plant. While I was wandering around the store, I came across a lovely violet plant. I was about to bring it to the cashier when Dan found a variety of different types of plants inside a silver watering can. I decided to take that one home instead. I will post pictures of my indoor garden soon.
Somethings are pleasantly nostalgic. Memories may spring up just by admiring them.
Since smell is the closest link to memory, even the smell of the flowers and soil can comfort us and remind us of something pleasant, or of someone we love.
In the future, I’d like to adopt a violet plant.
Do you have a favorite plant or flower?
Do any smells comfort you or remind you of someplace safe?
