You smell it long before you see it. Suddenly, there it is. It doesn’t look real and each dark green leaf is etched in white. Each stem is packed with leaves and bears a ball of rose-and-white flowers.
Could that be what smells so good?
You have to walk up and take a whiff. Yep! That’s it. You have just discovered the joy of Daphne odora, and the daphnes are blooming. Oh, my goodness!
