The plant that brought this all on by smelling delicious at the bus stop: Akebia quinata. [livejournal.com profile] lakmiseiru brought up pollination, so I found a paper about floral size dimorphism in Akebia that implicates teeny bees.



I always wish star magnolias would smell as lovely as they look. I'm pleased with this picture.



My sweet little saxifrage from QFC last year is blooming already! I divided the $5 quart pot into several little clumps, but this seems to be the only one that took off.



And I almost didn't see this adorable little hepatica blooming next to my slate path under the giant holly tree. It's bright lavender-white and there are loads of flowers this year, so I noticed it when I took out recycling after dark and had to photograph it this morning.

'saxifrage' is such a nice-looking word.

And they are so beautiful and fresh-looking always.
