That great smell...

With the current spell of warm weather (31 Degrees Celsius at the kitchen window) I noticed something unusual. Just to the rear of our apartment is a conifer. It is always bedecked with pine cones. At present it is absolutely chocker with green (Unripe) cones which are absolutely dripping clear resin which is terrifically sticky and is right bugger to get out of your clothes.

As the temperature peaks, the resin drips and crystallises, and the scent becomes truly intense. Not harsh and chemical, but warm, rich and fragrant, so unlike the artificial scents that are touted about as 'natural'. Hi ho, time for a cool shower and work.
