I’m going to use this photo challenge as an opportunity to feature a few more of the rose photos I took this past weekend at the rose garden in San Diego’s Balboa Park. You can see the other rose photos here and here.
Here’s another multicolored rose that featured a pleasant rose fragrance. It helps that it’s also very pretty to look at.
I loved the fragrance of the next rose. It had a very delicate and pure scent. Mmmmmm…
Other flowers can smell very look, including lavender, which comes in many varieties and sizes.
One scent I really enjoy is the one of wet dirt and grass after the rain. This after the rain scent is not too common in San Diego so I love it when it happens.
My favorite flower fragrance is lilac blossoms. Unfortunately common lilacs don’t like the San Diego hot and dry weather too much, so we find a different type here in nature called the Ramona lilac. Its scent is very, very light but it still looks pretty.
For my last photo, I’ll share one of my favorite scents: the smell of the ocean, here at Coronado Beach. I love the mix of iodine, salt and seaweed. Can you smell it?
