Nothing beats the smells of freshly mown grass, the coming rain, or of lilacs. With spring saturated into all of nature, some of my favorite smells are in the air. Every morning when I walk to the van to go to school/work I can smell the freshly mown grass and as I walk to and from class I can smell it then too. It is wonderfully invigorating especially as I walk between classes and toward the promise of a long lecture. Even from across the yard I can smell lilacs in the wind and as I take an evening walk there is sometimes that faint hint of rain in the air. I love these spring smells but unfortunately they will be leaving soon as summer decides to beat down its sunny wrath upon us. Until then though, I'll enjoy the spring weather God has graced upon us.
