The Scent of Spring

Hi Everyone!

Most of the weekend  was spent moving one of the kids.  I spent a lot of time outside – outside carrying boxes in and out.   No time for painting but lots of time for observing the surroundings.  What struck me the most  was the smell of spring. The smell of freshly laid mulch and the heavy sweet  perfume of the spring flowering bushes. Lilacs and viburnums are the ones that were by far the strongest scents this weekend. 

My favorite by far is the Chesapeake Viburnum. I have one the yard and the perfume scent of these flowers carry across the neighborhood.

Aren't  they beautiful?   My next favorite scented bush is the Lilac – a classic.


My personal favorite lilac is the 'Madame Lemoine' white lilac. It is a showy white and very fragrant.

Enjoy the wonderful scents of Spring!
