smell the flowers

June 19, 2019

There’s a short spell of a few weeks in the month of June, when the city smells lovely. The lilacs are in full bloom, and everywhere you turn, you see a peony, an iris, a rose or a poppy. If you’re lucky enough to be out on a walk after a heavy rainfall, that’s when Toronto smells positively magnificent. If I could bottle that scent, I’d wear it everyday. By late July, the city is hot and still, and smells like sweat and stale cabbage. But for now, I’m breathing in the sweet freshness of spring.
