Day 161 – Freshly Cut

Man mowing cut grass

“I love the smell of freshly cut grass. It takes me back to summers in Maine.” ~ Rachel Nichols
No summers on Maine for me instead they were spent in very rural Sussex with my Grandparents. They had a huge lawn, in fact they had a huge garden with little winding paths, Chickens and Pheasants, which my Grandfather breed, a pond, greenhouses and variety of dilapidated but picturesque sheds. They grew flowers and vegetables. Huge blousey roses scented the air and rows of Dahlia’s filled the space with colour and then there was the lawn. Large and green and mowed in perfect stripes. The smell of freshly cut grass always reminds me of those summers.

    I love the smell of cut grass as well. It takes me back to my childhood days where I would mow the lawn for my parents. I still love mowing the lawn. I do it during the week while hubby is at work. I’m going to keep doing it as long as I can. 🙂 Thanks for sharing with SYC. Your childhood sounds lovely!!

    I could almost smell the freshly cut grass! I love that smell and actually once had a cologne from Gap with that scent!
