From Fred's Goose Creek Journal today:
[COLOR= rgb(166, 77, 121)] Can you feel it? If you listen to the sound of the gears of the seasons, if you pay close attention to the feel of the hum of Earth under your feet and inhale purposefully to catch a whiff of it, you will know it: we stand today at the cusp of winter.[/COLOR][COLOR= rgb(116, 27, 71)] [/COLOR]

Interesting how we actually do say, 'Smells like winter,' usually starting in late Nov or early Dec. Just like the onset of spring has a certain smell as well.

Two of my favourite smells as they drift up the hill:
  1. The first wood fires
  2. The first mowed grass

Now what I would like is catching the salty tang of the ocean when you've kind of forgotten it's out there.

Good one - definitely up there. I guess I didn't mention it because it's not seasonal. It's always "around", but sometimes we walk down to the village and both say "ahhhh - there it is".

Can smell when rain is coming as well
All that has been posted is what still thrills me after all the years of what I have been doing
