Just went outside again this evening and spotted the first few blooms! Yeay! I've never seen the plant in bloom yet and I've been waiting since last winter. I'm excited to see all the blooms open and waifting their scent. It's supposed to have a yummy vanilla fragrance. I hope the blooms will be at their peak for our Anniversary picture on the 4th of September. We have a tradition to take a picture on our anniversary every year and it's usually in our garden. I LOVE last years picture. In fact I put it in Adobe Photoshop and made it into a watercolor painting and then ordered a large size from Walmart.com and have it framed in our foyer. I'll have to post it later for you all to see, it's very romantic!
