This is a Cornus Kousa, a Korean dogwood. Native dogwoods bloom first, then the pink Stellar series I posted, and last, but not least, the Kousas. This beauty is right outside our bedroom window. Since Kousas hold their flowers up, it's great to look down on.

Hi ES
Milkweeds or Stapelia?
Thanks for the info.

This is another new plant for me this year, Sand Alyogyne. Related to hibiscus I believe, the flowers certainly look similar. Pretty leaves like some geraniums. Flowers are only lasting a day but new ones appearing every day and I've collected some seed to try my hand at growing a few more. Very pleased it caught my eye at the garden centre. The flowers are more blue/mauve than has been caught by my camera.

Growing sweet pea for the first time this year in my garden. It smells like cattleya walkeriana, probably my favorite floral fragrance.

The forget-me-nots are really beautiful. I was so happy to see them just...appear.

I hope you get to see your family soon. Hopefully, if the vaccines don't protect us against the new variant, a booster will soon be available that will.

Interesting, I thought that the perennials had no scent, only the annuals. I've yet to detect a noticeable fragrance on the perennials... But I agree, when you are have fragrant ones they are AMAZING!!!
