Simple Pleasure Thursday

My simple pleasure is the smell of plants. I had forgotten how amazing tomatoes and squash plants smell. Yes, the fruits are nice. But the smell of the plants themselves are amazing.

When I was a little kid, my mother had an awesome garden for a year or two. It, as things are wont to do, fell by the wayside. But for a short time, it was magical. I would run out back and pick asparagus for dinner, or just wander around the straw filled rows. Some of my strongest memories are of the smell and feel of patty pan squash plants.
