My garden is football and dog free.  and yes I have a nice glass of Western Australian Cabernet sauvignon at hand. It brings to mind the trip I made with two old friends. It was the middle ones 50th. me being 4 months older ,and the youngest being 3 months younger.  The three tarts tour of WA.  One driving, and we booked lunch at Vasse Felix restaurant, overlooking the vineyard. When the wine waiter bought the bottle, we asked him to keep the cork,as it was lunch, and only two were drinking. He snorted with mirth. No we didn't need a cork, we finished lunch with a platter of cheeses on the balcony, overlooking the vines, just ripening ready for the harvest. We plan on doing it again at our 60th.

 More flowers have opened today. It should be at the peak for when Kef comes on Tuesday. Sadly it will then die as it is monocarpic. I hope to have seeds though.

No scent, I've just checked. But that could be because the tree lilies are pumping out enough for the whole garden.
