Can you smell it?

11 10 2012

During a weekend of rain, when there’s a break in the weather, we usually make a mad dash for church.


Last weekend church service was on Saturday. Not wanting to be shot by bow hunters, we set out for a trail a bit more separate from our usual spots.

The leaves are just beginning to change around here, but there are plenty on the ground and the recent rain had started to help them rot.

Can you smell it? If you are from the East Coast or have the privilege of living near a deciduous forest, you know just what I’m talking about.

Besides Barnegat Bay at low tide, nothing on earth beats the smell of decomposing oak and maple leaves. My opinion, of course.

Like a typical church service, this one lasted about an hour — just long enough to rejuvenate us and prepare us for the lazy Sunday to follow.
