A Little More Spring

The perfume from this Mock Orange has been particularly powerful this year. Whether we are on the porch or upstairs in our bedroom, the slightest breeze causes a new wave of its spicy, heady scent to wash over us.

I still don’t know if this bunny is a native New England Cottontail (Sylvilagus transitionalis) or an Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus). Either way, it, along with some friends and family, enjoy nibbling along the edges of our lawn, especially in the late afternoon.

I love this time of year! We don't have mock orange, but the star jasmine is in bloom. :)

Hi M -
I know, soooo cute!
The Mock Orange smell has been so intense this year, there are moments when it is almost (but not quite) overpowering.

Hi Irene -
Oooh, I don't know what Star Jasmine smells like. I'm guessing spicy and exotic though!
