The Smells Of The Seasons

Recommended Posts

Every so often the sensation of smelling a time of year hits me.

Despite all the apparent potential for cold wintry weather we have this winter past, i only really ever smelled winter once.

Earlier on this evening, for the first time, I smelled  Spring.  I don't know what it is, the wind direction, plants or flowers at their particular time of growth, but it's a smell that instantly takes me back to childhood years that I associate with the onset of spring.

Anyone else smell the weather?

That first smell of cut grass of the year. Delightful and uplifting.

I am one of these people.

 

In the Autumn, I definitely catch the scent of decay and wet-foliage at some point in September, mixed with the lower angle of the sun. Throw in the smell of Bonfire smoke and it makes me super-nostalgic.

 

In the Winter, i "smell tinsel" - hahaha, I've never been able to explain this to anyone really, but there is a distinct "scent" i associate with Winter, Christmas and Tinsel.

 

In the Spring, its a certain freshness and angle of the sunlight again. It usually happens for me in February at some point but I have to say, it hasnt happened for me yet this year. Aside from one "ok" day earlier this month where it apparently reached 17 degrees or something out of the wind, its been very chilly, grey and breezy.

The smell of unfurling blossom is noticeable round here but im yet to smell fresh cut grass though. The stench of muck spreading on the fields in late Summer is horrible.

For me is less of a smell, but more just a 'feel' one day of the arrival of the new season.. its always a special nostalgic feeling..

 

I've sort of had that first feel of spring today.. but not quite.. the feeling has to occur first thing when I wake up.
