Petrichor

It has been raining on and off all day today, so I’ve set about creating some art inspired by the present state of the weather. It has been a while since I’ve drawn anything, and it was nice to feel the urge to draw something.

I’ve learned a new word today. The word petrichor refers to the aroma that comes along with the rain. I never knew there was a word for that particular smell. If you’re interested in learning more words that describe different sorts of rainy weather, I suggest you check out William Hartston’s article “Words to Save for a Rainy Day.”
