Kim, with Real Toad's mini Sunday prompt shot me back to my earliest days, and thanks to an eBay photo, I've even been able to show you the kind of thing that caught my attention, in my Aunty's bedroom way back when...
A flower decked flask prompted me
to ask " Auntie Glad, what's in there?"
and she placed it in my hands, saying
" Pull out the stopper, and see.
But take care!"
Around it, bands of green and brown
topped painted flowers and leaves,
and I opened it and breathed in the scent
of Devon Violets for the first time.
I wished it had been mine! But from that day,
the perfume and colour found its way into my soul.
