Eat Drink and Be Merry challenge - Feast: 'Replete': Kortirion

Title: Replete
Author: Kortirion
Character: Sam Gamgee
Rating: G
Source: Appendices
Disclaimer: Tolkien knew Middle-earth’s summer days, Kortirion’s just adding another.

It wasn’t he didn’t appreciate Rivendell, with its twisting paths and urns, statues and stuff. Or Lorien’s golden wildness where he couldn’t decide if he walked tidy woodland or a careless garden; and then Minis Tirith’s manicured lawns, now surrounding a newly planted White Tree, and what with pots of scarlet flowers aside every front door – those old stones had fair glowed with life...

No, it was the bounty of the Shire he'd hungered for... one reason that home-coming had been such a shock. But now... nasturtiums, sops-in-wine, roses, thyme... a feast for eyes and nose... Sam sighed, comfortably satisfied.
