The Smells of Summer

The past few weeks, it has gotten very warm in LA and I’ve started wondering what I think of as the smells of summer. Yes I know it’s a city, but we still have some nature here!

The smells of summer, to me, in no particular order are:

Warm asphalt – this also happens when it first rains, just the first little drizzle

Eucalyptus – there are groves of trees in my complex

Charcoal from BBQ’s – what says summer better than a BBQ?

Berries – blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries…. and cherries! (not a berry but I love ’em!)

So what smells mean summer to you?
