Lovely day but not for somebody.  Had a busy morning planned but a serious accident this morning has affected all traffic and most of us had to turn back.  Local side roads are packed and I even saw a minor collision as vehicles tried to squeeze past. Took me an hour and a half to drive about 5 miles.

the accident is at a major black spot.....so many accidents and a couple of fatalities there.  Just hope it's not someone I know  

Talkback: The mock orange

Virginal does have a very good scent Thrify mama.  I too have Belle Etoile and it is highly fragrant.

I have to confess, were I to plant another philadelphus I would plant Virginal.  Its flowers are so much bigger and the scent is equally as good.

I suspect you have a seedling or another variety.  Not all are scented...I understand one or two new varieties are bred for their flowers and not scent

Making cement planter

I described in a recent thread how I made cement containers using a mkxture of cement and peat.  They now look like old stone troughs.

can't remember which thread now though.    Will search later

geoff hamilton was the inspiration and there must be an old video of this kicking around somewhere
