Favorite Scents of the Summer...

Salty ocean air
Sweet, fresh watermelon
Rain on the grass and the trees
The sugar-cookie smell of crepe myrtle

I think my favorite sense is smell (beside the sense of sound, taste, feel and sight, of course).  There is nothing that can take me back to childhood than that green, sultry summer evening scent.  

These are some others of my favorite summer smells.  

What are yours?


  1. what pretty photos! i love the ocean, watermelon, and rain smells, too. and also fresh lemonade. YUM!

  2. My favorites are coconut and lime, especially the combo! Also a cold pina colada :P

  3. A little belated but, would you believe, I've been thinking about this post ever since I read it! The smell of freshly mowed grass is one of my favorite summery smells. I think it reminds me of summers at my grandparents house where my grandpa would take us grandchildren on his lap (one at a time, naturally) and give us a ride on the lawnmower. It was one of the funnest chores ever!!

  4. I love the photos!! My favourite smells of summer will be fresh clothes, towels and bedsheets that has been dried by the sun (they smell so heavenly), smell of rain and wind!


Thank you for leaving your musings! I appreciate each and every one.
