unleashing scent of wild jasmine

“i seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, 
in life after life, in age after age forever.” 
― rabindranath tagore

october, 2014.

if there's anything i miss from my childhood home
is seeing the patio's floor covered in little white blossoms,
being drunk with the sweet scent of jasmine
on rainy, hot summer nights.


the first thing i'll do whenever we move to a home with a patio or yard
will be to run to the greenhouse and get me some jasmines.


(i'm still here, i'm still busy. soon i will have some free time, i hope)




hope you have a wonderful day

  6. Que delicia, que olor a primavera-verano me viene a la cabeza, en el balcón de mis abuelos hay un jazmín bastante grande y cuando empieza el buen tiempo, todo se perfuma… tus fotos me hacen pensar en ese momento ♥
