Pleasant surprise !!

Working in my “front” yard, I enjoyed the pleasant smell of flowers. I attributed it to the Mimosa trees in two neighboring yards. ~~ Kept moving from one unscheduled project to another. I was trimming sucker growth from base of a tree before launching into another “trimming” project.


Trimming the dead tree was near the bottom of my “to do” list. (It was inconspicuous among the trees.) Eventually I would eliminate the dead branches. It’s a beastly humid morning and anyone in her right mind would be enjoying air-conditioning.  “Yours truly” created a legitimate “bottle tree.”


My “pleasant surprise” was discovery of the Gardenia bush blooming at the edge of the carport. I was smelling the Gardenia and not Mimosa.

Only one-quarter inch of rain in the gauge but everything is soaking wet and humidity is still high.
