Fragrance Quote for March 29th, 2012- Sylvan spring By Francis George Heath

When the breath of Spring, on the mountain sides where Pyrus aucuparia finds its habitats, mixes with the delicious perfume of this beautiful tree, the exquisite fragrance is oftentimes wafted far away. Who, indeed, can tell where the perfume of wild flowers is carried? How often, when wandering through the woods, have we stopped almost involuntarily, momentarily enraptured by some sudden gust of sweetness, the source of which the most careful search has not enabled us to detect? Every one can recognize the delicious perfume of the Hawthorn blossom; and oftentimes, doubtless, in hilly country, when we think we have scented the fragrance of the beautiful flowers of that thorny tree, it may be that we are inhaling the sweet breath of the Mountain Ash, brought to us as the air from the uplands is blown down into the valley.
