It smells like summer

image from food2.com

Bratwurst and burgers sizzling on the grill.

Spring rains a-coming.

Freshly cut hay.  Puppy breath.

Soon? Lilacs in bloom.

Barbecue sauce.

Homemade salsa with cilantro and sweet onion.

Bud Light Lime and a Bells Oberon.

Corn on the cob… boiling in a pot.

Suntan lotion & Aloe Vera gel.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

It was 84 F here in West Michigan today which meant that we “grilled out.”  Yum!!  I don’t care what we make it’s just always better on the grill. The temps are going back down to the 50s tomorrow; so what I say! We’ll take it.  When you live in a cantankerous climate, you take what you get.

Summer is still a long ways off but …but being outside in the sunshine with delicious smells filling our neighborhood, it felt like summer is in sight.

What smells evoke summer to you?
