Being so busy back in a big city again, I realized what I have been missing is the smell of nature.
I forget how amazing summer can smell. Walking around the local community garden, my senses got treated to the most luscious array of nose pleasers.
From the hot, dusty earth smell of straw in bales, to the gentle caress of tomatoes ripening on the vine. Even zucchinis plumping themselves up for the table have a delicious come-and-see-me aroma to them. Their smell beckons you into the midst of their own enjoyment of summer.
I feel refreshed and revitalized after touching this part of what Mother Nature chooses to share with us. Add the colours to the aromas, and I have that downright glad-to-be-alive feel again.
Everyone needs to take a walk and smell summer. And feel that, no matter what, all is well in the world of nature.
