Theme Songs for Favourite Things – Flowers #2

Niobe – Shirocco & Mistral


Favourite Flower Name – Love-In-A-Mist

This probably seems like an odd thing to favour, at least enough to not just dedicate a post to it, but ascribe it a theme song as well. However, I saw the name well before I saw the flower and – in my interminable girlish romanticism – thought it was a lovely name for just about anything. As you can see, there’s much to admire about the flower in a visual sense as well.

For the slightly boring stuff, Love-In-A-Mist is otherwise known as nigella damascena, and is most commonly found in various shades of blue, but can also be pink, white and purple.

To top it off, it is obviously not only the namesake, but an integral part of Love In A Mist by Sophie Anderson, the beautiful portrait pictured below.

Ok, so enough of the pretty pictures and on to some suitably lovely music to match the kind of places my imagination goes when I muse the name of this flower…

I’ve spoken about Niobe, and specifically the album White Hats, here on S4E before, not long after I started writing here, in point of fact. Back then, I alluded to the other-wordly nostalgia her music creates, describing it as “a calm and graceful sound that is at once enchanting“. If you concentrate purely on the words Love-In-A-Mist, you may be able to see why I’ve chosen one of her songs as its theme. If not, just take a listen to the beautifully intriguing Shirocco & Mistral and hear the reasons why instead.




About Satellite for Entropy

My thoughts are fish, all swimming about and prone to scattering swiftly. Some of them are pretty but not all of them are gold. Some have teeth; some travel in gangs and with a single school of thought; some are haphazard loners, darting about the place randomly and to no obvious purpose. But they're all slippery little suckers. Sometimes, I get lucky and find myself with a good grasp on one, long enough to remember what it looks like before releasing it back into the wild.
