on losing my virginity
many of you, perhaps most of you, are familiar to scabiosa. well, until today i have been a scabiosa virgin. this is my very first time with scabiosa. to be perfectly honest, it was not everything i imagined it would be. i have admired scabiosa from afar for a very long time. but by the time i got around to it, she had already lost interest. and some color, i might add. it was a little disappointing actually. but then again, the first time often is.
a little wiki search tells me this flower is native to my beloved mediterranean region. next time in southern france, i will now be on the look-out for a wild version in its true colors.
