52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants.
I haven't been posting on this theme a whole lot, but after reading this week's prompt, I was inspired: Week 34: Smells. Describe any smells that take you back to childhood. These could be from meals, fragrant gardens, musty basements, or something entirely different.
The fragrant scent of viburnum, specifically Korean Spice Viburnum, is one smell that brings me right back to springtime at the house in which I grew up in Massachusetts.
