|Apple- Nutmeg Pelargonium flowers|
Wondering through Vancouver parks and seeing everywhere spring blossoms leads my mind to my scentsy good luck amulets with mauve, pink or white flowers which would protect persons and share scent'sational joy everywhere. (of course, I'm talking about unconventional amulets - the scented-leaf pelargoniums / geraniums)
|Miniature Garden with Pelargonium xFragrans ( apple nutmeg scented) in bloom|
April marked again to Vancouverites the celebration of beauty of the blooming ornamental cherries through Vancouver Cherry Blossoms Festival. Dance, Music and Art Exhibitions, Haiku Contest, Tree Talks and Walks... highlighted the brilliance of nature's rebirth and the joys of springtime.

My scented-leaf pelargoniums start to open shiny their flowers, perhaps inspired by the magic of the pinkish decor, looking like green gems with cream-pink incrustations.
|Citronella scented pelargonium- first flower of the season|
Anyhow, this inspirational haiku tries to capture the essence of season:
Bees began to pollinate
Signs of summer"
|Citronella scentedleaf pelargonium started to bloom|
