The Smell of Autumn
Yesterday my husband was mowing the lawn with the children, each one eagerly awaiting their turn. As they cut the grass for the last time this year, I sat on the porch with the the baby :B While sitting there I was enjoying the smell of the freshly cut grass and the crisp autumn breeze passing by. And the smell just brought back so many wonderful memories of fall when I was a child.

I am so thankful my children will finally be able to experience the true autumn season, raking up leave and jumping in....followed by a tick inspection. Warm toasty fires while roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. And hopefully a few camping trips:)



This little stroll down memory lane leads me to a haiku poem I thunk up all by my little old self for Melissa's Haiku Carnival....please, no tomato throwing.

Freshly cut grass... I was mowing the lawn yesterday and the smell automatically takes me back to my childhood and those very long summer days where you played outside forever, barefoot with the cool grass squishing between your toes.
