'Tis the season!
The season when that wondrous Queen of the Night, the Night Jessamine, begins to flower and conquer the evening and night air with its incomparable scent.
Yes, my Night Jessamine shrub on my balcony has started its first flowering of the summer and it is truly a scent to behold. I make sure I go out there every evening, without fail, to enjoy its perfume before I head to bed.
I took this photo this evening, not that I'm short on photos of my Night Jessamine bush.
Last summer, we enjoyed two flowerings, so here's hoping for the same again.
Seriously, if you've never smelt this plant, you need to put it on your bucket list.
If only I could put it in a bottle...
So, of course, my main man, PI Harry Kenmare, just loves it! He does have a sensitive side, you know.
