The splendor of the grass...5 things Smell

Aahhh...the smell of new mown grass. How it evokes the senses and stirs the childlike memory.

I remember the many, many times flopping myself back on the grass in our yard and listening to the neighborhood lawnmowers humming in syncopated rhythm. The air alive with the smell of cut grass and me just taking it all in...

Then there is the memory of the last month or so of school... when the days were heating up and the windows were opened wide to air out the stale rooms...

the grounds keeper would be out mowing the grass, the the new cut grass smell wafting in the windows...somehow making those last few days of school tolerable.

... last night when our weather was nice enough for the Hubby to mow, I was excited to once again smell the cut green grass for the first time this year...ahhh welcome Spring!
