The smell of the sea is sentimental to me and I know that I am home when I smell it. Such a simple joy.

I went to about 70 different buddhist temples while in Korea. Lotus carved on stone, lotus in ponds, lotus in roof tiles, lotus, lotus... Extremely beautiful and moving. Cherry blossom and camilla blossoms also hold a very special place in the faith: a certain symbolism of the transience of life.

P.. ~~ I'm a Magnolia gal by heart {=} I so enjoy the tree, the fragrance of those blossoms in front of my apt
Cherry Blossom's in Washington DC are truly lovely tho
The Dogwood Blossom's are exceptional beautiful, also.

I love daisies. Something about them seems so free. So vibrant. Makes me happy just to see them.
