Today I've been enjoying....

.....the beautiful perfume of this bush, known as Mock Orange to me.
Though it doesn't look it in these pics, the bushes/trees are smothered with them!
Just gorgeous!

A close up.

It makes a fabulous living screen when you have a few trees planted along the fence line! There really is a house behind it!  :)

And here is a great example.......

.....of what you get when you do nothing! Hardly ever water it, and there's next to no soil in the cement tub it lives in. Mmm, they were very yummy.

  1. Well how green with envy am I, we nurture our Strawberry plants and get very little (I think we love em to death)ha ha, and I love the Mock Orange only it doesn't like the frost or so I'm told by the locals.
    Have a very Merry Christmas my friend.

  2. Oh gosh look at those delicious strawberries! Your garden is beautiful..x

  3. Those strawberries look so very yummy! Any left??

  4. Hi Pam, Beautiful plants and YUM to those strawberries. I bet your garden smells wonderful. Thanks for the visit, Merry Christmas! Hugs, Linda

  5. It is such a gorgeous scent isn't it? We have a Mock Orange in our garden but it is a small shrub with different leaves to yours.

  6. Mmmm they do look delicious! I'm so looking forward to my parcel, thanks so much Pam! MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!! xx

  7. Looks like you have a green thumb Pam! Keep up the good work!
