My Ultimate Fantasy

It’s not as extravagant nor as sexual as some might think.

It’s not a fragrance (in the usual sense).

It’s not a pair of shoes.

Or a coat.

Or a bag.

It is a garden room.

Large and airy enough to house a few lemon trees.

Bright and humid enough to coax a Vanda into bloom.

Warm and comfortable enough to sit for a spell and read a book.

Until the day arrives when I secure that garden room, I’ll have to make-do with orchids like this Oncidium, and trips to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Spring feels far away, and summer a lifetime ago.

“In gardens, beauty is a by-product. The main business is sex and death.” ~ Sam Llewelyn
