The Smell of Spring

The smells of spring are everywhere the past few days. The fragrance of wild plum and domestic fruit tree blossoms mingles with the sweet scent of freshly-mown grass as villagers begin to tidy up their gardens.
But for me, the real smell of spring wafted in my window this morning as I opened the shutters to greet the sun just peeking over the causse...the smell of damp night air lifting up the rich, earthiness of newly-turned dirt. Farmers have been busy preparing the soil for planting, the true signal that spring has arrived!
