4meandthem & Kayelle: very subjective like music

I respect the right to free press and free thought ... thus, it is not impolite.

You both have the right to your own viewpoints ... and thus, thanks for sharing ...

Aromas are very subjective ... I like ginger, mango and peach ... Each to his own with respect to other views and happy at the table is my adage.

MC.

Babies, especially right after a bath with baby shampoo
Rain
Orange rind
Cinnamon and nutmeg
Cloves
My husband's deodorant
Cucmbers
Lettuce
Puppies and kittens right after a bath (weird, I know)
Apricots
Strawberries
Baking bread
Tree leaves
Pine needles (but not when they are burning)
Rosemarey, oregano and basil
Browning sausage with sage
A charcoal grill
Campfires
A freshly lit match
Snow
Wet tree bark
Cooking mushrooms

Some have memories attatched, some take me to a certain place and some I just plain really like.

It's been so long that I, too, forgot laundry dried in the sun. I haven't had a clothesline in years, but the scent of going to bed on sheets fresh from the clothesline ... Heaven!
