So at the top of the back hill, there’s the Forsythia and this flowering bush.



It blooms after the Forsythia stops, nearly immediately. Clusters of 1/2"-3/4" white flowers, slightly sweet, heavy scent that fills the area. Sometimes when the breeze is just right, I can smell it inside the house.

It along, with the Forsythia, was planted before we moved here, so no idea how old it is. It wasn’t taken very good care of, so is very leggy in its growth. The hill beneath it is eroding as well, so I’d built a low brick wall to help retain the soil under it. You can see what I mean in the first photo.

I thinned out the dead stock this year, and trimmed it back a bit, so hopefully it’ll start growing in thicker and healthier.
