Good morning all Hello Verdun
A lovely warm morning here too, with bright sunshine - Hemerocallis and echilnacea in the front border are budding up nicely, Roscoea purpurea is flowering and Clematis viticella Purpurea Plena Elegans and Venosa Violacea are full of buds and just beginning to open
The perfume from the honeysuckles as we walked around the garden in the moonlight last night was wonderful.
Verdun, you may be interested to know that a couple of years ago I planted a David Austin rose Mayflower - it is supposed to have a strong fragrance but last year I was a tad disappointed - this year the fragrance is very noticeable as you walk past - it seems to have improved as the plant has matured - hopefully the same will happen with the one you've planted for your mum.
