After a fairly long absence, I'm back in some real woods. And I was struck by.... the scent. Ok, it's spring, so there are more scents than usual. But nevertheless the forest has a particular, pungent sweet, slightly heavy smell. After a short time I couldn't smell it anymore (that's a problem/benefit of human noses), but it was sweet while it lasted. And the sea has it's own scent -and sound- as well.
