You and Me Both


I'm not sure what this flower is called but it had a very sweet fragrance!

People would walk by and look around trying to figure out where the perfume came from. Some would figure it out, some would walk away scratching their heads.

But they all say the same thing. "Ii kaori! (Nice fragrance!)"

And I would grin because Kaori is my name and it seemed like they were showering me with compliments!


PS: Sushi and Tall Gary have notified me that the name of this lovely flower is officially called Rosa Banksiae, also known in English as Banksia Rose! Thank you both!

Perhaps I think that it is mokkobara(Rosa banksiae).
I love it!

NO ONE WAS EVER THAT KIND TO ME.

I think Sushi nailed it. I was going to say yellow thornless banksia roses just as a wild guess. Rosa banksiae here". “It has likely been grown in the gardens of China for hundreds of year.”

Funny title to the photo. It is clear that its proper name should be rosa banksia kaori.

That's funny! It is pretty.

Yellow - probably the only colour that is able to provide the green of hope, if melted into the blue of the sky - seems as if you have a unique name.
Please have a wonderful Thursday.

Well, they SHOULD shower you with compliments!

To "B SQUARED" - no doubt that's because you drive a Yugo...
