Summer smells

Early this morning I walked past an extensive lavender bed, then later there's a huge lime tree.
The smells from these were so intense today - even more so this evening after a shower of rain.
I realised then that something was missing

Balmy evening in Cambridge, sweet smells of summer - and .....

old friends !

I had not realised how closely I associate the smell of lime trees with this time and place until now.

I have been coming to Cambridge at this time of year for nearly 20 years now. For most of that time working with the same people. But now I have new responsibilities and so the usual crew are not here yet.

I miss them.
