Touch-Me-Not or Sensitive Plant, Mimosa pudica

Do  you ever experience going back in time?   Ok, not time travel per say, but something reminding you of a place, a person,  an event, a smell, a plant,  a food  and you go back  to a simpler time

Most recently,  it was the smell and taste of a peach cobbler.  This time  going back to my grandmother’s kitchen and her orchard where we played in the red sandy soil for hours on end.

All of a sudden you are transported to that moment, the memory washes over you, and you smile at the wonder, the beauty, the remembrance. What takes you back?

The Touch-Me-Not Plant and It's Pretty Pink Flower

The Touch-Me-Not Plant and It’s Pretty Pink Flower

For me,  the touch- me- not plant  found in the field took me back to my first introduction of the magic of the leaves closing up when touched. I was a child again: amazed, mesmerized, and in awe of the wonders of this world.

 

Take the trip back:  treasure it, enjoy it,  relive it; because soon enough the reality of today will be present.

  1. I can remember how it smelled! It is interesting to me how smells can be remembered from childhood.
