Foto Phriday

I was strolling around the expanse of suburbia that I call my neighborhood with camera in tow.  There’s one street that I find myself going down often – as it’s one of the less trafficy sidewalk-less streets.  I know that there’s a huge rose thicket at the house on the corner of this block.  I know that there’s a house with a row of peonies.  I know that there’s another house with a beautiful Japanese Maple, as well as many houses with tons of azaleas.  But I didn’t expect the viburnum.

It’s the smell of spring! Followed by the lilacs, the magnolias, daffodils and hyacinths there is the heady, almost overwhelmingly intoxicating fragrance of the viburnum.

  1. It sounds like you really enjoy your little neighborhood tours. 🙂

  2. These little neighborhood tours are often multi-hour/many-mile-long adventures … which often end in sneezing fits and me calling a cab. Now, if only they’d give me some sidewalks!

  3. Nice photo, I love viburnums but mine seem to be suffering lately.
