Wow! You are in full bloom! I'll bet your budgies are loving it. We're not as bad as most here in Madrid, but because heating is never kept on at night, Sammy's got his little heating pad in case he needs it. ;)

Yes the weather here is nice at the moment, but we have had really bad fires burning out of control they sent relief fire fighters over here from over Eastern states of Australia.:budgie:

I tend to like perfumed flowers too Cathy. I used to propogate roses so I had many varieties, all perfumed. I only have 2 at the moment, Vision (the Fred Hollows rose), I know the guy that developed this rose, he is a bird breeder, it is similar to Iceberg. And Crepuscule, mine is a weeping standard but it is a climbing rose and flowers pretty much every month of the year and is an evergreen. It is apricot in colour and very fragrant. It is a very old variety of rose.

The other main flowering plant that I have is Datura Grand Marnier or Angels Trumpets. It is also Apricot in colour and very fragrant. Attracts lots of bees. Super easy to propogate. I also have a Rubinia Pseudoacacia Frisia or Golden Rubinia, beautiful lime green leaves and flowers around November with extremely fragrant white flowers that look a little like Wisteria flowers. In the Autumn the leaves go even more golden before they drop. I also have a lavender.

I love Gardenias and also Daphne. Now I have some room I may try to plant one of each. My soil is perfect for both Gardenia's and Daphne and I have the perfect semi shaded spot for them.
