Nothing Can Beat the Smell of Dew

Nothing can beat the smell of dew and flowers and the odor that comes out of the earth when the sun goes down.

~Ethel Waters~

Or stars of morning, dew-drops which the sun Impearls on every leaf and every flower.

~John Milton~

Both were my two most favorite times of the day. The early morning with the freshness and smells. The sunset hours with the long shadows that cast such a magical light. In fact both did and I was out to enjoy at every oportunity. I miss that immensely and I grieve this as they sustained me during other periods of profound stress. But always in my own gardens.
