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.

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.
