The yard is full of wonderful scents this time of year. In the flower beds, the sweet william's, confederate jasmine and an extremely fragrant old rose, rescued from an abandoned farm house in MD, are blooming. In the field behind the house, honeysuckle and some sort of scrubby white flowering tree were competing for olfactory attention. I took the pictures there to enjoy the scents.
Looking at the pictures, I have decided the pants need more tweaking and I should shorten the blouse by an inch or two if I plan to wear it as an over blouse. It’s bottom edge is cutting my body in half. I prefer the 1/3 top, 2/3 bottom proportions for tops worn out.
