Led around by the nose

Lots of little clouds and the occasional few minutes of overcast couldn't prevent the day from heating up. Not even the handful of rain showers which spattered briefly and then evaporated within minutes of falling did anything to cool the afternoon. The belated early-spring weather is probably over for the year now. The jasmine-scented nights will be around for awhile, though. Some of the blossoms are turning brown, but there are quite a few buds that have yet to bloom. The greatest number are still white and fragrant, and tonight the warmth of the air has coaxed forth a surprisingly powerful scent. I'm quite surprised that I haven't passed out from its soporific properties. It's certainly distracting. Now that I think of it, yes, it's insisting that I come out and inhale deeply. Well, I guess that's it. I have no choice. If I'm not back in a week, send help.
