When I was little I would lay in the iron bed in the middle room of my grandmas house in northern Minnesota and smell the sharpest, greenest odor I have ever smelled. It was dark out and the crickets would sing and the smell was so fresh it made my stomache hurt, and yet I couldn't get enough of it. It would never be as intense during the day as the sun would add a different, less sharp element to it. I have never smelled that again but I remember it so clearly. It was the smell of green. That is the only time I remember smelling a color, I bet heaven smells like that. And flowers and grandmas cooking.......YUM!!!
So this is what I was thinking of as I painted this stone shed in the garden. Overgrown and hidden..maybe thats what the pearly gates look like!!
