The Fragrances of Nature

Have you ever noticed the smell of cement after it rains? Or the odd scent in the air right before it snows?

There are so many fragrances in nature that are lovely and interesting...

The heady scent of gardenias in the early evening.

The sweetness of pink jasmine at night.

The delicate perfection of a good rose.

Salt air at the beach.

The musty smell of old pine needles piled up and moistened by a morning rain.

Rock rose bushes, whose waxy leaves have a most wonderful scent.

A freshly picked eucalyptus or bay leaf, torn in two.

The pure freshness of an early morning.

Isn't it wonderful?
