All Things White and Beautiful

There is a heavenly fragrance in the air from the bouquet of white blossoms in our yard and neighborhood. It lures me outside several times each day just to inhale the combined perfume of magnolias, gardenias, blackberry blossoms, mock orange flowers, laurel blooms, honeysuckle, roses, clover, apple blossoms, lily of the valley, alliums, and moonflower. There are other beautiful, fragrant, and colorful flowers in the garden, but this season, the whites have definitely dominated this aromatic landscape.
