Sunday

Some things really do remind you of warm summer days, don't they?  (apart from the fact that it * is * a warm summer day, I mean)

1.  Strawberry picking.  wandering along the rows, selecting carefully here and there, while all around you the sun is warming the fruit, causing it to send a warm, heady fragrance into the air, surrounding the pickers with strawberry scent.

2.  The scent of strawberry jam, boiling up in the pan before being poured into little jars ready to give as gifts to lovely parent helpers at the end of the school year.

3.  Following on from that, the aroma of freshly baking bread mingling with the sumptuous jammy smells.

4.  The smell of  new potatoes boiling in water and mint.  

All summer scents.  All experienced yesterday.  All simply wonderful.  What a lovely day it was!
