What do you love about nature?

The smells of nature are so far unmatched by human attempts at scents.

I love the smell of dirt after a rain, the smell of old snow on a mountaintop in early summer, and the smell of weeds getting baked by the sun.

My heart stirs at the smells of low tide, deer so close I can scent their pelt, orchids and lillies, spruce trees, clean air, and cut cedar.

I also love the domestic nature smells – my kitty’s fur, lavender, tomato plants, a hand-woven wool carpet.
