The Lure of Evening Scented Stock

I am sitting here on the computer and I know it's time to get off and relax with a book.  But there's a sweet scent on the air, wafting through the open window.  Beckoning me near.....




The evening scented stock (mathiola) is blooming!

I can't remember the type of stock mom grew, but I could just sit there smelling it forever.

So much scent from such a little plant. We have Honeysuckle flowering at the moment, that too has a fab scent.

I have never been privileged to grow this plant, but I can imagine what the fragrance is like. Lovely!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, you have me wishing for the very same drifting through my window. All I smell is the A/C running full blast. Dreaming...oh, to be able to have a window open right now. I'd give my two ovaries [if I still had 'em] for an open window.


Happy Friday to you.

They are lovely little flowers. I didn't sow any this year, but you've just reminded me that I'm missing out on that wonderful evening scent.
