Day 17: For today’s RAW or Random Act of Wildness, The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild app has chosen: inhale a wild scent – take a few seconds to inhale a wildflower, plant or leaves.
So, I spent a leisurely couple of minutes pottering about the yarden.
I have a few herbs growing in the yarden so I made a bee line for them. Crushing some leaves between my finger and thumb I sampled the scents of fennel, lavender, rosemary and mint. The feathery leaves of the fennel released a very potent scent. Whereas the lavender was much easier on the nose and Artie loved the mint!
What’s your favourite wild scent? Mine has to be the headyness of hawthorne flowers.
Thanks for reading, and stay wild!
I love the smell of bracken, but best of all has to be heather in full bloom.
We’ve just had a lemon tree I’ve not smelt it but we have some mint growing which smells lovely and some chives and tarragon.
I love hawthorn too and the refreshing scent of water mint. X
