What a lovely thing to see, spring starting to appear in the front garden. My husband kept saying that there was the scent of gardenias out front. We didn't know what it was and then we discovered that a small bushy flowering plant was giving off an amazing scent like gardenia flowers. We don't even know what the plant is. Does anyone know? We have helibores coming up right on time. Notice the spores under these leaves. The leaves are starting to appear all rolled up in papery casings, ready to unroll. I hope they wait until next week. I'm off to the city known as The Big Apple for a few days. I'm going to see some performances and some art shows. Much to report on in a few days.
