A Photo A Day, May 8

"My Favorite Smell"

This is a photo of the line of oaks at Oak Alley Plantation on the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Live oaks have a very earthy, distinctive smell or fragrance. It is very apparent when walking among them. I never associated this smell with the trees until recently in my life, something I took for granted and never paid attention to. To me, it is the smell, aroma, fragrance of home. It is the smell of my roots.
