I must admit that I have been busy lately and the gardens get a bit neglected this time of year. Yesterday I was out very early (taking out the trash) and I was struck by the alluring and familiar scent of sweet, pink jasmine. I'm not sure there is any aroma I love more than jasmine and the unexpected whiff caught me off guard. I wasn't expecting Spring to be so close at hand, but the rambling blooms of jasminum polyanthum indicate otherwise. Today I will make time to get out in the garden and see what else is waking up!
