Stop And Smell The Roses

On my walk to the neighbourhood grocer...


Periwinkle

Stinking passionflower


Bird's nest fern

Jasmine


When was the last time you stopped and smelled the jasmines...er.. roses? 

I would give the stinking passionflower a miss though!

What a wonderful walk you took us on. Thank you. Your passionfruit flower smells bad? Ours has virtually no smell.

Dear Veronica,
you show beautiful flowers (which are as exotic to me as snow is to you :-))
Roses and jasmine are not yet in bloom here. However, many fruit trees are currently in bloom - and the lilacs smell wonderfully in our garden. I love this time of the year and the scent of lilacs!
I wish you a nice first week of May!
All the best from Austria, Traude

How beautiful you shared with us, Veronica! Thank you!
In our country, roses and jasmine have a long way to go before they bloom, roses have not even made buds.

Have a fine day!

Pretty soon the lilacs will be in bloom and then we stop to smell them a lot.

Tom said...

Periwinkle is quite delicate, but I observed the leaves, very special also!
