AKEBIA VINE & SLOW FOOD MOVEMENT

Akebia vine is blooming. Pretty but not showy. It's FRAGRANT. With akebia blooming, I feel like a dear friend has returned. A once a year fragrance, akebia flowers aren't sold during the rest of the year, that I know of.
.
Is this what the SLOW FOOD MOVEMENT is about? Creating a sense of drama, desire, appreciation. Skip the eco, carbon, sustainability, la-ti-da.
.
Savoring smells, tastes, textures.
.
Giving up the world of choice and gaining the world within the fragrance of akebia.
.
Akebia quinata - 5 leaf akebia, zone (4)5-8. Plant only 1. They like to have SEX.
.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
