Aroma of Autumn
"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." (Frank Lloyd Wright) I recently had a suggestion to pick up a fall leaf and smell it to enjoy the aroma of autumn. Watch out for the bugs. That's getting up close and personal with nature but I'm pretty sure I can smell the aroma of autumn by walking through some leaves, letting the wind carry its scent. The scent is intensified after a rain and the mix of pine needles and fallen leaves from deciduous trees is absolutely autumn for me.
