Unseasonably warm week here in the CLE, magnolias and other flowering trees are in full bloom, so walks around my neighborhood are perfumed! Not sure where that sharp almost prickly fragrance is coming from, possibly wild cherry or a crab apple; if you've ever smelled spirea, a leggy sort of shrub, that is what these tight clumps of white tree blossoms smell like. Later, the older flowering crabs will contribute insane sweetness along with lightly indolic daffodils. Pansies are gentle, and in a month or so, tulips will be greenly ravishing.
