Lefse...how cool that you knew Roy Rogers when you were little. I thought he and Dale were just great!

I love the smell of a summer rain...
freshly turned soil...
kitchen smells, like vanilla and cinnamon...
and a good cigar.

This was hard! As I read through everyone else's, I would say - "oh yeah! That one too!". For me though ...

* Every season but especially the warm, damp smell of the earth in my gardens in the spring but the cold snap in your nose in the dead of winter is a close second.

* Vanilla

* Line dried linens and clothing

* Campfire

Smells, to step outside after it rains and smell everything all clean and fresh, the smell of a bunch of violets just picked, the way my horse use to smell when she nuzzled my neck while being petted, the smell of a fresh peach just off the tree, and I also have 5, babies and little children, be they clean or all covered in grim from playing, to me there is nothing sweeter or more wonderful.
