The Friday Five

Five of my favorite scents:

1. Fresh cut grass, though it wreaks havoc with my allergies

2. Spices like vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cinnamon rolls come to mind.

3. Lilacs, with the same disclaimer as #1

4. Bread baking.

5. Air after it rains.

What's your favorite scent?

This week's graphic was done by The Young One as her project for her 3D Modeling class. She's in WPI's IMGD (Interactive Media and Game Development) program.   No rainbow ponies for my little girl! Who wants to go to the luau?
