Day 15: Scent

You know what I miss? I miss the smell of fresh-cut grass. You don’t get that scent in the winter, and by my count, Iowa’s on at least its third winter.

I’m tired of winter. I want the grass to grow faster, I want it to be greener, and I want there to be flowers. I miss seeing flowers in the ditch on my way to work (I miss going to work, too, but that’s another post). I miss leaves on trees and the smell of rain in the air. I miss rain that doesn’t freeze when it hits the ground.

I miss the smell of barbecues, and the attendant guests.

I know I’ll experience all these sights and sounds and smells again in due time, but I’m not a patient person and I’m tired of waiting. I’m ready for the sun to shine again, both literally and figuratively. How about you?

      Amen! My grandpa kept bees when he was alive, and my uncle still does. But I never helped hive new bees, so that was interesting to read about. How long have you been a beekeeper?

    We are still snow-covered and desperately awaiting some spring temperatures. We have been well below the seasonal averages but this weekend it is supposed to change. Fingers crossed!
