Description

Sauntering through the pine forest with the clean smell of soft forest floor underfoot, we admired the wild flowers surrounding us with the aromas of distant gorse and lavender bush. The perfumed mix conjured childhood memories of marzipan and play dough. Beneath one tree we stumbled across an old wooden spice box that had retained a complex mix of dried spices imbedded within the wood. Aromas of fennel seeds, cumin, nutmeg and coriander seeds filled the air alongside liquorice stick, cloves and sweet tobacco leaf. The box made a perfect table for our flask of green tea as we sat down to enjoy beams of afternoon sun bursting through the branches.
