These insignificant flowers grow in a sheltered spot on our walk to the port here at Perros.  They have a wonderfully sweet fragrance rather like mimosa and very large leaves which used to be used to wrap butter in the days before plastic bags and greaseproof paper!


  1. What a fascinating bit of information to go with your lovely drawing.

  2. We call it Petasites fragrans, if it's the same thing that I've planted in my garden. Yes, fragrant indeed, and they flower in winter.Very nice sketch.
