Dear old Maggie and a very young Taji…
…meeting for the first time.
Woolsheds all have a similar smell to them.
Mostly relating to sheep and their by products.
Most woolshed are built off the ground
to facilitate easier loading of sheep
and wool bales onto trucks.
However, the other reason is to allow the aforementioned
sheep waste fall through the batten flooring.
These smells are added to with that
of human exertion during shearing
as all woolshed jobs are physically taxing.
My body and joints will attest to that fact.
I will conclude with a few images which
may be more pleasing to the eye and our noses.
Our jonquils, daffodils and snowdrops
have pushed their way into a wintry environment.
They may not work our sense of smell
into overdrive with a heady perfume,
but they do lend some colour
to a winter garden.
The sense of smell.
