Grass

On of my other favourite smells is the smell of freshly cut grass,
I also love all the little flowers you find growing in amongst the grass.
The feel of walking barefoot through the morning dew grass is priceless.

In Norway some of the houses and cabins up in the mountains has got grass on their roof to keep the heat in....

Halfway across the world our roof is also made with grass, but this is to keep the cool in and the heat out.

 We don't have a lot of grass on our property, it is mostly covered in sand, bougenvilleas and frangipani's.
However I do have some lemongrass growing, it smells wonderful and is supposed to keep the mossies away. (Doesn't work). However lemongrass is great for cooking!

  1. Frangipani er min yndlingsblomst, så heldig du er som har det i hagen:-) Lemongrass til å lage te av er også nydelig, og du er jo så heldig at du kan plukke rett i hagen. Håper dere har det fint på øyen. Her er det som du sikkert vet både kaldt og vått. Klem fra Therese
