When I was little, I remember my parents having a booth at our local garden show, The Scent of Spring, each year. Held in March or April, it was a time to enjoy and celebrate the arrival of sunshine, warmer days, and most of all - flowers!
These days we have a different type of Scent of Spring -- cut flowers that are growing in the greenhouse! Today was a first for me, with being able to cut these fabulous Stock stems and offer them for sale to our local customers. The fragrance of stock makes it one of my all time favorite blooms. The soft scent of cloves is absolutely incredible, but not overpowering by any means.
If you need me, I may just be in the greenhouse for the next several days just inhaling the beauty and scent of these gorgeous flowers!
