What are these plants? The flowers have a smell which reminds me of glue. Smiling

Thanks.

That's one of the Elaeagnus sp. tribe. They are fragrantly floriferous, and frighteningly pestiferous.

Thank you very much. These wild bushes are on a public land next to my neighbor where I walk my dogs everyday. Here is another picture taken this morning.

Yes, that is too bad that they are infesting property where they are not likely to ever be managed. You will be able to observe their numbers and density increase year upon year, and continue to exclude all the beneficial native species that would otherwise occupy that environment.
