Smell: It is a sunny, warm day and the flowers are fragrant like Violets and Roses. I can smell the heady aroma of the greenery, and a very warm, pleasant "clean" scent in the air - it's a mix of slight moistness (as if a rain could be coming soon), and the smell of fresh cut grass on a hot, dry day.
Sound: I hear a slight rustle as the woman's dress shifts about and an even more faint rustle of the leaves on the flower bushes as she moves past them. I hear the soft flutter of butterfly wings and a few noises from the bird she holds.
Touch: Her ribbons and dress feel silky, the flowers and leaves are soft, the arch in the background feels like iron. The glittery pentacles might feel like warm and powerful metal that gives a tingle if I could touch them.
Taste: Being that I see this card as the height of summer, it might taste like watermelons and fresh tomatoes from the garden.
