Dirty Love

Dirt a Love story

Yesterday while going for a walk I caught a whiff of something floral and sweet, a smell different then the damp rot of decay that lingers when the snow melts. This was an illusive scent, not lingering long enough to identify. Could it have been a soil bacterium called Mycobacterium Vaccae? A bacterium that releases serotonin in our brains. Maybe gardening is addicting.
I know that momentary whiff gave me a little lift. It was a promise that spring is here. Here is a wiki link where you can read about Mycobacterium Vaccae http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycobacterium_vaccae
