Today’s Daily Prompt: Smores, salty ocean breezes, veggie burgers on the grill, sweaty people on the bus – what’s the smell that you associate the most with summer?
To me, nothing is more symbolizes summer more than the smell of food being cooked on grills outdoors. I know it’s the summer when I can smell barbecued food everywhere I go. The British (especially us in the North West) get very excited when there is a little bit of sunshine. People purchase big and new barbecue grills if there is at least 15% chance that the sun will show up on a weekend. TV programmes will be interrupted by B&Q advertisements (commercials) that boasts half-priced barbecue grills.
Another personal favourite of mine is the smell of flowers. Their smell makes my morning and afternoon walks very very pleasant.
