    I don't know why, but

    whenever I finish mowing my yard, I can't help but sit on my back patio and just breathe in the scent on my freshly mowed grass. I think might be a little weird... XD

    Today I cut my grass,

    lots of grass. As I pushed my lawnmower in ever so straight lines I became aware of my little boy who is 2 pushing his toy mower beside me with intense concentration on his face. I became so acutely aware of my influence on his life and future...............it is a huge...

    The First Cut Of Spring

    I made the first cut of the spring today. The smell of the freshly cut grass was so nice. The feel of the grass through my fingers as well, so soft. I love the smell of freshly cut grass.

    I just went out to the backyard& became

    engrossed with the beautiful smell of freshly mowed grass. This had me literally stop in my tracks. Stood there and took it in. It brought me to another time in my life. Diff time periods when I use to be happy. Free. Ahhhh! Forgot what the heck I was doing.

    I'm Not The Only One!

    I am so glad to see that I am not the only one who enjoys the smell of fresh cut grass! A friend of mine recently had a good laugh at me when I told them this was my favorite smell in the world. :) It reminds of home, I think about growth, and brings back the memories of...

    Nowadays I live in a big city

    so I no longer get to smell freshly cut grass as often as I did growing up in the countryside. But to this day whenever I hear the sound of a working lawnmower and than the sweet, almost fruity, somewhat dewy scent reaches my nostrils, it triggers so many memories of sunny, fun...

    It reminds me of being a little kid again.

    Young, innocent, naive. All I knew is that it was Sunday and that dad was out with the lawn mower. I lived in a simple world where nothing mattered, especially not getting in to trouble for trying to make the grass grow faster. How I would kill to go back to those days.

    It's a nice hot day and I just cut the grass.

    I'm hot and sweaty and tired. To cool down with a ice cold beverage sitting on my back porch in the shade and smelling the fresh cut grass --- priceless

    It's like a lawn chair under shade cool,

    and the most pleasant reminder of summer chores I can imagine. I never had to shower. Just preteen stink and cut grass. It's like perfume. Some smells just pep you up.

    I used to cut grass a lot

    when I was young so the smell evokes so many memories. I now live in NYC so I rarely get to smell it.

    And the fresh rain coming down-wind.

    And steaks cooking on the grill. And I don't mind them all at the same time... With a crown and coke to match.
