The jasmine opened two days ago on the sunny side of the wall and in a couple of weeks will flower on the other side and will remain in flower now until August. On warm evenings the scent hangs heavily in the air and attracts numerous night flying moths. I have seen the bats hunting over the wall, feasting on the insects attracted by the flowers. I like to sit near it and just inhale the perfume.
This is such a lovely plant; a bit of a hooligan now it has matured and needing severe treatment with the secateurs to keep it under control, but well worth the trouble. It has spread through suckers that root where they touch the soil and this year I have been removing seedlings too.
