The Scent of Spring

When you live deep in the countryside your senses soon get acquainted with all all the sounds and scents of rural living.

For instance two weeks ago we reveled in the sound of a machinery spraying the acrid, sinus-searing smell of pig muck for a couple of days. Today, as a build up to the magnificent symphony of Spring, we have the mechanical clacking noise of a muck-spreader and the sweet, warm scent of cow muck.

Both scents are an important part of country living and as such I love them both (I just wish the neighbouring field was downwind) 😀
