My favorite perfumer of the yard is the glorious Magnolia! It seems to be blooming a little earlier than usual this year. And that's A-OK by me! I can never get enough of this beautiful scent.
It's such a beautiful bloom with it's soft creamy white petals.
Even in decay, it has grace and beauty.
I've posted this photo before, but it's my all-time favorite shot I've taken of the Magnolia...
The Gardenia bushes have been heavy with flowers for the last month or so.
I'm very much in love with the Gardenias. I mean, how could you not be?
The neighborhood is full of fragrance at night as I walk the dogs. Delightful!!!
Aaaaaah, and the Jasmine. Gotta love the Jasmines.
This year I put some Jasmine on a trellis next to where we hang the hammock. It has turned out to be a good idea!
And there's tons of Sambac Jasmine all around the pool cage. I can't remember if I've posted this shot before or not - my apologies if you've seen it before.
It climbs up the Giant White-Bird-of-Paradise, so there's fragrance above my head and all around when I'm out back in the garden.
The Passion Flower continues to bloom. I catch a faint fragrance once in awhile as I'm walking around the area. If I stick my nose in it - it smells so delicious!
This beauty doesn't seem to have a fragrance, but she is blooming for me right now and I very much appreciate it!
I admit I was a bit surprised it was in flower as I wasn't paying much attention to this basket full of orchids that I have hanging on the lanai. They're there until I decide which tree to attach them to. I'd better get with it and make up my mind. And that is always hard because I am a typical Libra!
