Tenderness

Photobucket
Honeysuckle on the vine. Its scent takes me back to my childhood; and all is well again.

Is there a particular scent that does the same for you?

Beautiful!
While honeysuckle does take me back to my childhood, nothing brings me back to my mom's garden like the scent of lavender. Lavender already has natural calming properties but coupled with my memories, it does wonders for me. I love it!

Delicate, fragile, lovely -- beautiful shot!

I know this is odd, but the smell of horse manure brings me back to my childhood like no other. I spent a good deal of my time in a barn, and the smells just give me a feeling of being warm and protected...

Beautiful. Dial soap and pot roast do it for me. xoxo, Lauren

...this reminds me of when my children were small and used to suck the nectar from the honeysuckle...ahh...thanks for that memory that was prompted by your oh, so lovely photo.

this weekend as we were driving through the hills...every so often we'd get a whiff of the honeysuckle in the air...it was almost magical...and then it was gone.
absolutely gorgeous shot.

Ambush perfume...on our 9th. grade class trip to Washington D.C. someone spilled a bottle of Ambush on the bed in our hotel room and it ate a huge hole in one of my friends fancy taffeta party dress that she was about to put on...I will never forget that smell....beautiful picture of the honeysuckle...

Hi. Kelly sent me.

Honeysuckle is so special, and yes, it brings back childhood memories. I also love red honeysuckle.

Your photo is very beautiful.
