Wordless Wednesday - Savoring the Beauty (& the Smells) Around Us

Wordless Wednesday - Savoring the Beauty (& the Smells) Around Us


William Johnson
's post about taking time to appreciate the beauty around us, reminded me of a photo I took over the weekend in my backyard. Thanks, William!

April’s showers have definitely brought May flowers to the Ligustrums in Charlotte! The Japanese Privit, or Ligustrum japonicum, serves as a fast-growing hedge and is filled with tiny, white, four-lobed flowers. The smell of these blooms tends to pique the interest of passers-by.  The sweet, musky scent of the plant can be smelled for quite some distance; people either really like the scent or really dislike it!

This one serves as a screen in my backyard between our home and our neighbor’s home and is quite mature, at about 20’ tall. The odor is so strong, we can smell it inside our home when someone opens the door. Thankfully, both of us really like the smell!

 

If you’re looking for a hardy plant that is tolerant of a variety of soil conditions, requiring very little care other than a little pruning to produce a desired shape (or it can be left to grow naturally), Ligustrum is a great choice. Little dark green berries ripen to a dull black color in the winter, followed the fragrant blossoms we are enjoying now.

 

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
