Beautiful flowers and plants! Great pictures. Can't wait for things to start blooming here. Our wild plum tree flowers send out the most amazing aroma, kind of peppery and sweet. Love it.
I always look forward to your bloom updates. You make me want to pack up and head south!
On my walk yesterday, I smelled something very sweet. I wonder if it was Chinese Privet. It was WONDERFUL.I'm lucky to walk pass a lot of jasmine too. I love the spring smells! :-)
the chinese privet here only flowers sparingly - I guess it would need more warmth. and the roses are just sprouting leaves - no flowers or even buds in sight - yet! but we do have quite a few aromatic plants - gorse is one of my favourites. when the sun warms the flowers it smells like coconut with vanilla - yummeeh:) when you cycle by a row of shrubs, it's like diving into a sea of scent! no cacti here though - I'd say they'd rot with all our rain, never mind the temperatures:) enjoy flowers and visitors!
Remind me not to visit in spring -- I'm allergic to the smell of jasmine! Everything looks pretty good though.
Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!
I've seen a lot of these in the last few months...... Breathtaking painting from the Creator.
