The Mayflower

Not 'that' Mayflower silly, but our Provincial Flower.

I found these little gems on Wednesday at the park in Halifax.

They have a wonderful fragrance and have a pinkish tinge on the blossoms.

I remember when I was a kid women from the African Nova Scotian community
went from door to door in our neighbourhood selling these in bunches.
Mom and my grandmother would always buys a few.

The fragrance from these is intoxicating would fill the entire house.
And we would know that summer was coming and school would be out!
