The temperatures have finally risen here in Colorado. Summer seems to be upon us. It's not my favorite time of year, though. I'm not very tolerant of heat and sun and sweating and such.
But summer is...Summer! There are some wonderful things to be said for it. No school. No icy roads. A feeling of freedom.
But some of my favorite things are the scents.
Freshly mowed grass.
Sweaty little kids.
Rain laden pines.
I have to make an effort to enjoy summer rather than simply surviving it. One of the things I can do is sit back, close my eyes and take a deep breath.
What scents speak summer to you?
