    We also have fireflies here in SD and especially on humid evenings, we see them all over our backyard while seated on the deck...

    The smell of freshly mowed grass (while you're relaxing and your neighbor is mowing ).
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    I kind of enjoying smelling the freshly mowed grass WHILE I'm mowing. Yard work is a welcome chore while working from home these days!

    And when finished, laying down on a freshly mowed lawn...

    Do you have a riding mower? I mainly smell exhaust when I'm behind my walk behind...

    And I agree- I'm looking forward to getting back out in the sun!

    Not exactly Summer here in SD, but the 60's to low 70's are a very welcome relief. Rain has fallen, fertilizer down (along with some grass seed earlier) and mowing will begin soon. For now we have to deal with the wind...

    I'll go along with that and maybe some old fashioned Kite flying...
