Been in garden all day again today just do one bit then back to another. Finally all plants are in everything is watered to my satisfaction then=== oh no RAIN after spending an hour watering the rain comes on and soaks everything in 10 minutes!! typical!
Never mind there is absolutely nothing to beat the smell of rain on the trees and flowers and the earth!

Isn't it just the pits, Mary, lol.

I get so annoyed when that happens. What a waste of water!!!! Still, as you say that 'oh, so fresh', smell is wonderful.

fresh rain smell
they should make it into an air freshener so you can have it indoors
I like to have the doors and windows open when it rains (better with wind)

such a clean natural smell

Mookins, How does opening doors and windows when raining help with your wind? I just stop eating baked beans :o))))
Very seriously though I wonder if that could be a good idea, they have fresh linen smell and autumn leaves smell so why not a fresh rain smell I bet somebody has'n thought of that one may be worth an e-mail to a fragrance company. Hmmmmm!

I usually have the door and windows open if the wind's in the right direction. Hush, Bobg.
You can't beat the smell of rainwashed air. I bought a refill for the auto-freshener, called Morning Mist; I thought it might be something like it. Pah! Morning mist over a swamp, more like. It's horrible.

Ha ha yeah that's what my wife,Gill says some of them smell like, essence of swamp muck :o)) Makes you wonder where some of the laboratory peoples noses are? The worse one we got was supposed to smell like fresh laundered cotton but all it did smell like was an old laundromat.
