It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Fragrance of sunlight

I hung my gown out in the sun.
Tonight I brought it in.
I cannot tell how sweet a scent,
the gown, from sun, 
my skin.

There is nothing else quite like it. I love to hang my sheets out.

MMMMMMM...the smell of sunshine and fresh outdoors will soon be a memory as winter slips in to replace it. Try as they may to copy it I have yet to smell a candle scent or air freshener that can compare.
