A Fragrant Closer


To finish up a day of delicate blooms, this is the Korean spice viburnum, one of the most exquisitely perfumed shrubs of the spring landscape (and with the lilacs and fruit trees in fragrant bloom, that is quite an accomplishment.) This often goes unheralded, as the blooms are largely inconspicuous unless singled out by the camera lens. It flies under the radar that way, detectable mostly on still nights when their perfume is at its most potent.

It’s a marvelous ending to this tranquil but pretty day of flowers, and if one day they manage to make scent a part of the online experience, let this be a post to exemplify that. Until then, get out and find yourself one of these bushes.
