Oh My Gosh!

This evening I was working in the backyard & kept getting a little whiff of brug perfume. There is almost a total lack of brug blooms open out there and I started inspecting one brug after another for a hidden bloom. I have a couple of plants with 1 bud each, just starting to open...I checked them for fragrance - zilch.

Finally, I shrugged it off, thinking it must be the oriental lilies that are in bloom...or maybe the clump of hot pink phlox. Then I just happened to spot a bloom on L'Amour, which was crowded between a tall rugosa rose bush and an even taller Creamsicle. On the back side were 2 more open blooms. It has been on my To Do list to get L'Amour out of that spot, relieving the crowded situation. I had already moved another brug out, but hadn't finished the project.

I immediately made a prominent space for L'Amour and got it settled there. Then I kept walking over to it and inhaling the perfume....getting my "fix"! I'll probably go out for one more sniff before I go to bed.

That happens to me in the winterhouse. I don't notice buds developing due to the crowding down there either and then wham.... I walk in and smell a bloom. happy.gif

RA, even tho I withhold fertilizer starting around the 1rst of Sept, my climate delays the start of the brugs' blooming and they often are still developing buds when I have to put them into winter storage. I do cut the leaves off, but I let the buds go ahead & open in the garage. I almost always have a few blooms scenting the garage well into winter.
