The theme this week at Our Beautiful World #59 is Aromatic
Stocks on the hall table
Buckets of flowers outside the florist.  The jonquils looked very pretty but I find their perfume too strong for indoors

Wednesday was a lovely sunny day and as I was walking past the Red Poppy florist  when I caught the scent of stocks.  It reminded me of the cue word for Our Beautiful World this week.  I bought a bunch to take home.  On the way home my car smelt wonderful.

Ros asked if we had a favourite aroma.  I like the smell of fresh brewed coffee in the morning, fresh baked bread and home cooked curry.  I like working in the garden with all the aromas, each season is different.  I like it when I am in the bush after rain.  The smell of eucalyptus is so fresh and clean.  Ros also mentioned how fragrance can invoke memories.  Lavender makes me think of one of my mother’s aunts.  When we went to stay with her the bed linen always smelt of lavender.  Another is a particular male fragrance reminds me of my first boyfriend.  Also when I smell beer brewing I remember backpacking in Germany.  This is because one of the Youth Hostels I stayed in was very close to a brewery

My weekend at the film festival was fantastic!!  I left home at 7:30am Friday and arrived back home at 1:30am Monday.  I was very tired but had enjoyed myself enormously.  There really wasn’t a bad movie amongst them.  Some of the best were Jack (German), Queen and Country (British) and A Girl At My Door (Korean).  I also saw the first two episodes of a new mini-series coming to Australia, Devil’s Playground.  It’s a psychological thriller and I will certainly be watching the series

Take care and  thank you for visiting.



  1. Hi Skye, what a great post....oh yes stocks, I remember their scent my mum grew them in her garden and the good old jonquil, we used to pick them in the bush on the way to school - all that goo dripping out of the stems and yes soooo smelly. I love the cooking aromas too...wonderful. Glad you enjoyed the film fest - have a great week and thanks for sharing with OBW, cheers Robyn
