Winter Daydreams

Bois de Jasmin is taking a break till next Monday.  Meanwhile, I wanted to share a little reminder of spring–mimosas on a snowy day. Wish you a great start to your week!

  • Jillie: As seems to be so often the case, Victoria, you have spookily picked up on my thoughts! Many, many years ago I was acting in a production of Chekov’s “Three Sisters”, and as the play began, we were standing on the stage with our backs to the audience. In front of me was a huge vase full of mimosa, and I can never smell it now without being immediately transported back to that moment. I was reminiscing about the scent only the other day with the person who is writing the history of our drama company, and telling him that I wish I could breathe in that aniseedy yellowness right now.

  • Bela: I spent my teenage years and early youth in Nice so the scent of mimosa is imprinted in my heart and brain. There is nothing like it.

    I’m a bit puzzled by the orangey shade of your mimosa, V. It’s normally much more yellow than that. January 29, 2013 at 11:35am Reply

    • Victoria: Not sure, J, maybe your monitor saturates the colors? It looks yellow rather than orange on mine.
      I know what you mean about the mimosa blooming time in Nice–the scent is everywhere, and it’s so evocative!

      Thank you very much, everyone! I already miss you. January 29, 2013 at 8:43pm Reply

      • Bela: Oh, that must be it. Thanks for replying, V. Enjoy your break. 🙂 January 30, 2013 at 9:23am Reply

  • Ferris: What a beautiful picture! I can look at those flowers all day and if I were sitting at the table, be mesmerized by the intoxicating smell of mimosas. January 30, 2013 at 2:40am Reply

  • HB: Time off is always so important. Enjoy!! January 31, 2013 at 8:18am Reply

  • iodine: Thanks for the beautiful photo- where everybody noticed the mimosas, I spotted the Moet bottle too!

    Have a nice week off! January 31, 2013 at 1:49pm Reply

    • Marc: I spotted the champagne bottle right away too! February 1, 2013 at 9:42am Reply

      • Victoria: 🙂 I discovered at the last moment that we had no vases tall enough to fit the branches, so an empty champagne bottle left over from New Year’s celebrations came in handy. February 1, 2013 at 11:43am Reply

  • Barbara: Enjoy your time off, V! Vacations are essentials to refuel. We miss you though. February 1, 2013 at 7:51am Reply

    • Victoria: Thank you! I really need a vacation. This week was simply so busy that I found it hard to manage it all, so BdJ took a short break. February 1, 2013 at 11:44am Reply
