a garden update. daphne

i think i wrote in a previous post that the hellebores were the first flowers to start blooming in our garden this winter but, i miswrote

it was the daphne

which i didn’t know it was daphne until i asked around on instagram

this bush is in our backyard and it is so fragrant that sometimes i can smell it in our kitchen when the door is open

its flowers are pretty yes

but its scent is like nothing i have ever smelled before

happy spring friends
