It rained here last Saturday and Sunday - a long steady rain for a few hours. That rarely happens in the desert, but it's really greened up my back yard.
As I happily walked around my backyard checking out the wet plants, I was struck by the enticing aroma of wet French Lavender. This quart sized pot that Dr Desert Flower and I planted 2 years ago is now the size of 5 piece drum set. When whetted naturally by the rain, the scent is amazing. It doesn't OVERWHELM you like walking into a Bath & Body Works store does. It draws you in, closer, and a deep inhale... it's really a beautiful thing.
20 years from now, someone will figure out how to "upload fragrances"authentically. But until then, words and images will have to try and suffice to explain this beautiful phenomenon.
