The Perfume Jam

It became obvious upon throwing the conservatory doors open today,
that in my absence the garden had been having a
Spring-perfume-party-jam-session all of its very own. Oh yes!

Don't let these dainty and demure beauties fool you for one second,
for they are the powerhouse of a fabulously scented Spring.

The blend of intense perfumes was nothing short of a nostril extravaganza.
 
So grab a cocktail and let me introduce you to the cool cats in my perfumed garden.....

We've got Mr Brugmansia on lead vocals with his backing divas; the Choisya Sisters, saweeet!


On Bass, Viburnum carlesii 'Aurora', those are some deep notes you're playing there brother.


On Keyboards, the magic fingers of Osmanthus delavayi, she always hits the high notes.
  

On drums, the sublime Daphne x transatlantica 'Eternal Fragrance' who likes to round it out nicely.





Not forgetting the elegant and refined Erythronium revolutum 'White Beauty'
she's not particularly scented, more of a groupie who muscled in on the perfume jam!


Now that's, what I call smooooooth!
