Yesterday when David got home, I was sitting out with the chickens while they enjoyed some supervised free ranging. The weather was absolutely perfect and I couldn't imagine a better day. One of our favorite things to do is walk the property together each evening and make note of all the changes we see, and yesterday the weather was just right for an evening stroll. Spring is such a magical time in the woods and you can seriously see new growth in the matter of a day.
While observing some of the trees, we noticed one had the most gorgeous white blooms. I pulled a branch down close to smell it, and found the scent so intoxicating. David decided to cut off one of the branches that was getting in the way of another tree close by, so he asked if I wanted some blooms to put in the house. He didn't even have to ask, because he knows my affinity for bringing in blooms - our butterfly bush is a favorite of mine to bring inside the house. I gathered up some vases while he started cutting branches to arrange.
The branches and blooms look so lovely in my milk glass vases. I've already placed them in several rooms in the house and I'm really enjoying the scent. The only thing bugging me is that I don't know what kind of tree this is! The scent is somewhat woodsy and oriental, and made me think of jasmine.
Anyone have any guesses as to what this might be? I'm really intrigued!
