Sweet Aromas

Spring bulbs bring some truly heady scents to the garden on a mild day. Like the overwhelming sweetness of Erlicheer Jonquils:

Or the vanilla tones of Freesias:

I love the mix of cream and lemon colours, and being right by the gate to the garage, I am always greeted by a lovely smell.

Picking up the yellow and white mix on the other side of the garden, many of the daffodils have a sweet perfume. The smallest daffodils seem to be the most pungent.

Drawn by the warmer weather and abundance of flowers, bees return to the garden. I watched this little fellow make short work of every Primula flower:

Even though the season has just begun, I am always looking to the next season….here is a little seedling tray of English Daisies (Bellis perenis) which should be ready to go into the ground in a few weeks’ time:

Happy gardening!
