Smells of Home

I rode home from town late this afternoon with the windows down and the sun roof open. What I noticed were the scents. I love the way George County smells. There are so many possibilities. Sometimes you get the fragrance of cut hay. Other times, just a trace of honeysuckle. Today, I kept thinking I'd come across a spot in the road that would give me the flavor of rain, but it just never happened. I did pass a place where some limbs were burning. The smoke drifted across the road, bringing to mind fireplaces and bonfires on days much cooler than this. My favorite stretch of road passes a forest of pines. When the sun heats all the straw that carpets the ground, it releases a spicy scent that I prefer to all others.

Now, before I give you the wrong impression, don't forget that there are other aromas that are often very strong in this area: cow manure and dead skunk!

Just remember: without the malodorous, the rest wouldn't be nearly as pleasant.


  1. You are so right. Skunk odor is bad. Riding to Yazoo you don't know what the smell or site may be.

  2. Fresh plowed dirt. I love that smell.
