Oh! What a Day! November 14, 2010

Misty cold autumn

There is a smell in the air today that seems to me so very wintery. It is part smoke, the drifting winter scent of bonfires, burning fronds of conifers and sizzling damp leaves. This is layered across that tangy smell the airs gets when it has just stopped raining, the scent that hangs heavy in the morning and which burns off once the weak winter sun has gathered its strength. Then, to make the smell of winter all the more complex, there is the addition of the harsh smell of frost, a tingling feeling that makes you wiggle your nose to try to release it, that makes you wish you packed gloves or mittens.

Oh! What a fabulous day!
