This evening I would like you to write a Prose piece which includes the line: “I’d like, too, to plant the sweet alyssum that smells like honey and peace” from the poem, “What I would like to grow in my Garden.”

***

Feeling nostalgic as I plant one more peony bush in containers on my patio garden. Pink is the chosen color, just like the ones I had in my country garden home over ten years ago. The cut peony blooms so large and fragrant that only one bloom was enough to scent my entire home.

I had other flowers, iris that had been handed down to us from my husband’s grandmother, who maintained a huge variety of iris even in her nineties.

I’d like, too, to plant the sweet alyssum that smells like honey and peace, always delicate and inviting on the edges of a large container. It goes well in contrasting dusty miller as a border.

The patio garden is not ideal and I miss the green grass and pink crab apple tree blossoms as well, but this will do, bringing back scented memories.

  2. Cheryl, I like how she’s adapted to her new environment by bringing pleasant memories through flowers with her. You’re right about the peonies, just one will perfume the whole house with their ginger.
