I've been working on making the garden smell lovely, and this morning, after some decent rain last night (8mm according to my rain gauge) it mostly does. The front garden smells of rosemary with hints of lavender and also of lemon (from the monterey cypress). The back, as you enter it from the side passageway or back door, smells mainly of honeysuckle, with aromatic undertones from the herbs. Most of these - sage, lavender, mint, oregano, thyme - are lovely.

However, one corner of the garden is dominated by the pungent scent of a curry plant. It has pretty silver foliage and small yellow flowers and is attractive visually, but the smell isn't to my taste. If anyone wants it do let me know - it's 60cm wide and 30cm tall, slightly woody but with plenty of fresh growth in the centre if you wanted to cut it back hard, and it doesn't need watering or feeding. It's currently in a pot (although I'm afraid I want to keep this) so should be easily transplanted. You can see the plant in question in the last photo of this set, taken by [ profile] zandev today. We seem to have lots of pink flowers at the moment.

I wouldn't mind if no one else wants it - we have a lot of empty pots after last year's "ask [ profile] wimble to water the garden" confusion. *g*
