    Happiest of birthday wishes to dear Trilby Lark!

    My last morning in this wonderful country. Yesterday I found myself at a street fair/block party sort of thing, with a uniformed marching band of kids. I was eating octopus-on-a-stick and having a lovely time. I came upon an artist selling hand-carved sculptures of animals—rabbits, owls, turtles, and the like—and thought I’d like to have one as a souvenir of Korea. I decided that the animal that would most remind me of this place was a pig, because of all the wonderful pork dishes I’ve eaten, but I didn’t see any little pigs in his display. I said, “Pig?” But the artist just looked puzzled, so I made a pig snort/snuffle noise, and he gave me a big smile and took out a drawer from under the counter, and there were an assortment of piggies, from thimble to fist-sized. So now I have a little tater-tot-sized pig to remind me of Korea.

    SOTFlight is Pamplemousse Rose, because I can’t stand any of the ones in the travel sample bag. I’m leaving them in the hotel room.

    Octopus on a stick made me laugh.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Happy Birthday to our dear Trilby Lark!!

    Happy welcome home wishes to foxbins and ExtremeK! Korea sounds like a charming country and I feel enriched for having followed your posts, foxbins. I especially enjoyed the cooking/eating, your walks through markets, doll-face makeup (but I don't want to wear it, either) and cheese couture!

    Glad you enjoyed the irises, ExtremeK! These are the tall, bearded German variety- easy care and multiply to make more freebie plants. Just need sun and good drainage. Mine are pretty much done now but I did get a few more pics; will see if I have another interesting color to post this week. And next to bloom will be daylilies, another plant-it-and-forget-it type that I bet works well in your area.

    Finishing another sample today, Bergamote 22. I won't miss this one too much; it's good but I have citruses that I think are better.

    Hot here today, but clouds blowing in and rain expected tomorrow. Summer has arrived overnight. Lilac is done, irises are in full bloom. Wearing a bit of Mon Précieux Nectar.

    Happy birthday Trilby! And safe travels home to foxbins.
