Okay. Step over here.
Now, close your eyes and breathe in.
So, what do you smell??
I know, I know. How do you describe it? Is it fresh grapefruit? Is it honeysuckle? Is it ripe mango? Is it the fragrance "Happy" by Clinique?
All I know is that there are 2 of these bushes on either side of the brick stairs leading up to our house, and every time I poke my head out the door or hop up the stairs this delicious sweet, fresh smell comes wafting over.
I called My Mom (the horticulture whiz) to ask her what the plant was, but over the phone the words "green leaves, white flowers, and fresh grapefruit" weren't very helpful.
So, does anyone know what this is? Lygustrum? Tea Olive? Or just my own, personal mysterious fragrant shrub of delight.
