My favorite memories of summer are some of the typical summer smells - newly mown hay (or grass in the city), the smell of the air after a rainstorm, when it is fresh and clean, cookouts with the smell of wood smoke. I also like several of the tastes - fresh and juicy peaches, watermelon, corn on the cob, fresh raspberries right off the bush (which we picked wild when camping and then boated over for some ice cream to have with them), strawberries. I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and we went camping most weekends. It was wonderful.
