IF YOU RECALL…… I HAVE BE WRITING ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE SUPER SWEET FRAGRANCE THAT HAS BEEN PERMEATING THE AIR…..

 BOTH DENISA AND HAD THOUGHT WE CHECKED EVERY POSSIBILITY…… WE DIDN’T……

 AFTER A SEVERE RAIN STORM ON FRIDAY THE SMELL CHANGED…… IT NOW HAD A SWEET WOODSY FRAGRANCE…..

 WE HAVE BEEN CONCERNED BECAUSE THE SPRUCE TREES IN OUR AREA LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE DYING…… THEY WERE ALL TURNING BROWN……

 THE WOODY FRAGRANCE LEAD ME TO CHECK THE SPRUCE TREES IN OUR YARD…… IT TURNS OUT THAT THE SPRUCE TREES WERE ALL IN FULL BLOOM……

 AS YOU CAN SEE….. THE BLOOM ISN’T VERY ATTRACTIVE, BUT WOW……

 WHEN WE TALKED WITH OUR NEIGHBOURS UP AND DOWN THE STREET,  NONE OF THEN CAN EVER REMEMBER THAT HAPPENING BEFORE…… SOME OF OUR NEIGHBOURS HAVE LIVED HERE FOR SEVERAL YEARS……

 INCIDENTALLY, THE TREES 10 MILES DOWN THE ARE NOT IN BLOOM…… WOW….. IS THAT EVER STRANGE……  

 IT’S A VERY WARM 13C (56F)……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……
