The Aroma of Summer
Magnolia, not the Japanese kind, and gardenia is blooming now in Mississippi. Both of these wonderful flowers smell deliciously sweet. Unfortunately, all I can smell is the chicken litter my husband has spread on the hay field across the road. Every time the breeze blows across the gardenias planted by the front door and down the dog trot, it is also blowing across the chicken poop. My plan to have the lovely aroma of gardenia circulating via the dog trot has failed miserably.
