The Sweetest Scent

When a coal miner was asked, "What is the sweetest scent," he replied, "Pure fresh air, something people take for granted unless they've been deep in a coal mine."

When an adorable six year old girl was asked what the isweetest scent is, she said, "It is the scent of my bubble bath."

When asked the question, a baker replied, "The scent of freshly baked bread."

A mother answered, "The scent of my new baby."

A surfer said, "The salt spray from the ocean."

A prisoner answered, "The scent of freedom."

There are as many opinions as to what is the sweetest scent as there are people. But in the end, for you, the only nose that really knows is yours.

It's flowers were as red as a candy apple, as it alone was touched by a sunbeam

I was captivated and asked it, "How did this happen?"
