  1. Lovely photos. I, too, love the smell of the earth after we’ve had rainfall following a dry period or drought as we’ve had here in the UK. The little dog is gorgeous. Lovely post. Thank you for sharing. X


      1. No rain here Sylvia. Winter is the dry season but the prediction is for a very wet Spring.

        Did you know that Petrichor was termed by two Australian scientists in the 1964.
        Petrichor is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word comes from the Greek words ‘petra’, meaning stone, and ‘ichor’, which in Greek mythology refers to the golden fluid 🙂


      2. No, I didn’t know that term (Petrichor), but I love that you know that and shared that with me. Language is so interesting and beautiful. The concept that there is an actual word for that smell is just wonderful.
