Mimosa – lighting up the winter like in the south of France

Dear readers,

I hope you had a nice Sunday. It’s all christmassy around us –  but today, I want to bring a little sun into the middle of the winter with the beautiful mimosa I found in a flower shop yesterday. I combined them with some beautiful dark blue anemones. The colour combination is my mum’s favorite and I also love it.
Mimosa is a neon yellow flower that you find at this time of the year in the south of France and reminds me of the wonderful time I had living in Aix-en-Provence. Apart from being so beautiful and delicate, this is a very scented flower. It is a shame I can’t do a scented post yet. I decided to do a musical post instead with a song from the French singer Barbara, talking about the death of her mum and wishing that she rests in peace in heaven with the scent of a mimosa flower.

I wish a nice penultimate week of 2012!

lighting up the winter-by-madame love

Que vos étés se fleurissent
Dans votre pays, là-bas
Aux senteurs odorantes
D’une fleur de mimosa,
Que votre hiver se réchauffe
Au coin d’une cheminée,
Que les saisons vous soient douces.
Vous avez tant mérité.

Rémusat (Barbara)

  1. Merci Corinne! Les anémones étaient un cadeau du fleuriste cette fois-ci. Je suis une tellement bonne cliente maintenant que je repars toujours avec un petit cadeau! 😉
