I'm not sure whether it is due to the two thunderstorms yesterday, but today when the first flower of Ebony Circle opened this morning I was amazed at how fragrant the bloom was. Even from several feet away you could smell that single bloom. No small feat considering my Lilium regale are also blooming and they are extremely fragrant!
