Beloved - White Freesia blooms in golden light.


The fragrant Freesia  is the symbol of sweetness, friendship, innocence, and trust. They’re so beautiful, and their scent has to be one of my most favorite. Freesias are one of the flowers that makes me wish I could just continue breathing in!

So far, I’ve never found a perfume or essential oil that captures the amazing fragrance the living blooms have. If anyone knows of one, please let me know!

The bulbs were planted in April, and checked daily in delightful anticipation of the time they would bloom. Here you see the first blooms that came in June. This image was captured outside, late in the day,  in the hour before sunset. The warm light gives them a beautiful golden glow.

I’ll leave you today with a lovely quote that seems a perfect fit for these sweet flowers.

“To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.”  ~ Beverly Nichols
