Day 5-if only the internet were scented….


This is a beautifully fragrant little shrub, Philadelphus “Manteau d’ hermine”, a mock orange and another plant another chosen to fit into my little garden. In June, the big Philadelphus shrubs add their fabulous perfume to the scents of summer, and although this is only 2 feet high, it’s scent is fully as strong as its 6 foot cousins. The advantage of the little ones is that they carry even more flowers and fade into the background more easily when they finish flowering.
