Voodoo Lily (Dracunculus vulgaris) ewwwwwwwww!
The spicy scent of Clethra 'Ruby Spice' fills this whole acre with just a few open blooms. The bees love it.
Lilly Mae, my faithful garden lady growing flowers. My mother always said Lily Mae had more outfits than she had. Always change her outfits . Hope these show well, didn’t have on my phone . From my albums when we “took pictures “.
Fresh baked blueberry scones with lemon glaze! YUM!
Last years...just starting cutting a few of this years. Better selection of
colors last year though, I think.
Sadly, I lost my sense of smell several years ago. It has its good and bad points.
I love the aroma of a fresh homegrown tomato!
DH stopping to smell the roses.
Love the marigolds
Lilacs in spring
A few of my peonies.
Ginger with very sweet fragrance - this is my favorite ginger flower. The purple waterlily in the lower left also has a strong fragrance, which is sort of spicy and not really my favorite.
My mother never wore perfume, but she did use Jergen's Lotion daily. Since Covid started, I hold a dollop of this lotion to my nose each morning to inhale the cherry-almond scent and rejoice my sense of smell is intact. Then I smooth it on my skin and remember my Mom.
My nose loves the scent of food being grilled:
A waterlily named 'Colorado'.
Double Delight rose - my favorite rose scent.
Fragrant daffodils in the spring.
I am jealous of you that have peonies! Their scent is so wonderful.
But so is the scent of the Banana Magnolia.
sweet smell of a clean kid
Here, kitty, kitty!
Peach cobbler I made yesterday.
