...and a little bit of Queensland
Having lived in Hawaii as a little girl, I know the wonderful scent of damp earth as it's warmed by the sun. This image evokes that memory for me. Nice.We have a bit of snow in the south of France today!
I really love the power of our senses...they evoke such deep feelings within us, for better or worse. Please this was a good one for you. Would love the snow...please send by return post!
Gidday Al, thanks for dropping by the Sunny Coast, you are off to a great start. Now that I know your here I shall be back! Sunshine Coast Daily Photo - Australia
Thanks for your kind words of encouragement. Pleased to have you along :)
Beautiful light. I love those tropical rains. I can smell the earth and plants from here... You're in summer lucky you :)
Beautiful image Al. When we lived in Africa and it rained when the sun shone we called it a 'monkeys wedding' , don't ask me why!!
Thanks Pierre. The rains are OK...it's the humidity I don't like. But the smell is wonderful, isn't it? Yes, still another 3 months of summer weather here.
Thanks...what an unusual name 'monkey's wedding'. I'd love to know where that came from. Was it a general term or just within your family?
Wonderful monkey's wedding. Would love to know why the name.
I've tried to do some research on it :http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-mon2.htm
Thanks for doing the research Nathalie...I would have got around to it in time! It's a new expression for me.
