Summer…. school holidays were awesome with my cousins and often at my Mama’s house. She grew poppies in a garden bed near her front door every year. There were always plenty of roses and poppies in vases around the house. The smell of apricot jam bubbling on the stove and Anzac biscuits in the pantry are a vivid part of those memories. Smells are so incredibly evocative. I love how they creep into your brain and trigger memories and emotion.
