    Dirt

    On the meme post below I stated that one of my favorite smells is dirt. WMY asked what that was all about.

    I absolutely love the smell of dirt just after it's been turned over or rained on. It reminds me that all green things live and grow there. It brings back memories of my farming roots (pun intended). Every food that you eat derives from dirt in some way, even the fish in the ocean.

    Dirt makes me feel grounded (I've got to stop the puns). I love getting my hands into it especially to plant something.

    I found this picture of a redhead (just for you Suze) who seems to like dirt as much a I do.

    Hey, I like redheads too!

    Just turned over dirt does have a most interesting smell to it. One of the smells I find pleasing is just after a semi serious rain and the worms are out all over the cement. It is not the worms but I suspect it too is the smell of dirt coming up through the lawn.

    Sign Gurl,
    You absolutely need to check out Demeter fragrance library. I have a "dirt" candle from them and some cologne that smells like fresh cut grass..... it's great.

    Dirt does smell wonderful.
    I worked in the frangrance industry for years and I seem to remeber that dirt is a 'note' in some fragrances!

    The redhead looks dead to me. Seriously, I think she OD'd on the smell of dirt. So be careful.

    Are you sure that redhead likes dirt? Maybe she is dead!

    You know what, oddly enough, I get the the dirt smell thing. I love the smell of dirt too. Only you explained it much better than I could have.

    However, I think Tumble is right. That gal looks dead to me. Somebody call CSI. Or .... Monk.

    Monk is my new thing. I hadn't seen it until just last week. Cool show!

    Please don't ask me how I got from dirt smell to Monk. I swear to you, I dunno.
