Its officially March, and the Variegated Winter Daphne is in full bloom and spreading its intoxicating scent throughout the garden. I always forget what it smells like until I get the first whiff of it in the spring, but somehow that's what makes it so special.
Otherwise this post is pretty much just pictures... but makes a great opportunity to note that you can click on any of the images to see the higher resolution image in another window.
