Smells of Fall
I smelled the smell of decaying leaves. If you haven't smelled this then you are probably thinking "ewwww". Well let me tell you something that smell is just one of the things I miss about New York, especially upstate New York, falls.
Besides the spectacular colors that you just don't get anywhere else there is the smell of fall. That smell of decaying leaves. It is pungent and earthy. Oh how I have missed that smell.
It was funny. I found these two trees in the middle of a local park in central Ohio yesterday. The changing colors were amazing and the inspiration of my perching point. It was odd because all the other trees around these two were still green. It was like NY came to me in Ohio with the colors and smells.
It made me homesick....
