Wishing for Smell-O-Vision

DAY 131

11 MAY 09

When the shrub in front of my living room windows blooms, the scent is just this side of heaven. I love to open the living room windows and inhale deeply.

Pictured here is a closeup of the buds, shortly before blooming.

Too bad this is another of the shrubs driving my husband crazy. He's threatening to cut it way back. I can't exactly blame him -- it's taller than the windows. Still, I hope it continues to smell as wonderful after he cuts it.

Post-processing: noise reduction, sharpening, slight brightness boost, border addition.


  1. Very pretty. What kind of bush is this?

  2. I honestly don't know. It came with the house. I just know it smells good in the spring. Balances out the Gardenia on the other side of the house very nicely.
