The first thing that flooded my senses was the sweet, earthy smell of recent rain. The second was the suddenly vibrant garden. After weeks of sunny weather, the plants seemed to be lapping up this new turn of events. Dust was settling and baby shoots were being nourished. Everything was shiny and green and dare I say… happy. I could almost hear the scream ‘weeee’ as if life were a roller coaster and the world around me was enjoying the ride.
