    • Oh, yes jasmine. I love the scent of jasmine. And agapanthus are such lovely flowers, so many pretty shades. I have one which has variegated leaves so looks very pretty even without flowers. I have just had a look to see if there are any flower spikes this year and have spotted two. I think I had four last year so we shall see. I will include them in July’s flower round-up 😀

  1. I love the smell of the Lupin in the late spring in the forest around Lake Tahoe. Add the other smells of the forest and I’m in heaven…or at least what I hope heaven smells like. 🙂

  2. Out of those you’ve chosen, I’d have to pick the rose, Jude, but there really are too many beauties to narrow it down. I’m a rhododendron and clematis gal, so I didn’t vote. 🙂

  3. Horse chestnut. Laburnum. Rhododendron. But it’s always a delight to see poppies in paddocks and by the railway line too. Thanks to the northern spring.

      • Not much flowering in June but the Tibouchinas are making a glorious mauve splash around the place. I’ve just planted one so it will be a couple of years before it flowers.

        • Mmm… they are lovely. I wonder if I can grow those in Cornwall? One reason for wanting to move there is to be able to grow some of my favourite South African plants, in particular a Brunfelsia. Winters are generally frost free so it might be possible.

        • I have 2 Brunfelsias in my garden Jude they smell divine when they flower. We call them “yesterday, today and tomorrow!!!” Being frost free you should be able to grow lots of the same things we grow here.

        • That’s the name I know them by! And I remember the perfume. I shall have to give one a try at least and they should cope with coastal conditions as we lived by the coast when we grew them.
