Sprigs: Confederate Jasmine

Walk down a Charleston street in April and you can smell the confederate jasmine before you see it. And you can't miss seeing it because it spreads like crazy as a ground cover and climbs like Jack's beans up poles and signs and porch columns. One downside is that rabbits like to graze on it. Shucks, it's so prolific it would take a legion of bunnies to even make a dent in it.  

I love being ambushed by (natural) floral scents: lilac, plumaria, honeysuckle. 

Right now the smells in my yard are milder: wisteria, iris, peonies, and musty  tomato plants after you've touched them.

Go outside and breathe deep. These are fleeting pleasures.
