The smell of summer


We have the loveliest may flower tree in our backyard. You can smell it all over the neighborhood, and if we leave the kitchen door open, the whole house smells like summer and flowers and sunshine and happiness.

It's lovely. It's a gorgeous tree, and sometimes, when it's too cold to have the doors open, I pick a few flowers to put in my room. Then my room smells like happiness. Sometimes it even motivates me to get things done...like clean my room. Heh.

What's your favorite summer smell?

  2. We used to have a tree like that.... it was so beautiful, and smelled perfectly amazing, but then someone (thinking it was the power company or something came and cut it down. Rotten old rutabagas. Bah humbug.

  3. I have to agree that the flowers are a favorite summer scent of mine. I also love the smell of chlorine from the pool, call me crazy! :)
