Mainland Australia, that is.... :(

I'd go anyway..... :) It would be getting quite cool there now too, my kind of weather. I've always thought that I'm living in the wrong area in the south. I should be living in Tasmania or New Zealand. Australia is too hot in the summer... :(

No I haven't, Cavradossi. I would imagine that would smell exquisite. When my computer was near my loungeroom window, I could smell the hoya near there at nightime. It was just so beautiful.... :) I think this species of pittosporum is the japanese version. It looks like it on the images I saw of it on Google...

Great, I'll turn up tomorrow, it it isn't raining. ;-)

If you do get there Poppy, go to the North Island first, because the South Island is much prettier than the north is. The South Island is a very beautiful part of the country. I was there in 1977, a long time ago now... :(

I had never even heard of pittosporum before today but I imagined myself pronouncing it and I put the emphasis on 'spor' - I must be a Kiwi at heart. New Zealand has for long been on my list of 'must see' countries...

Probably wouldn't be a problem since this yard is but a dozen blocks from the beach and there is a light prevailing southerly sea breeze most of the time, and especially so in the spring. And lunch...of course ! : ) Have any of you ever been around a night-blooming jasmine? Now that's a scent ! !

Yes, that's what I meant, Poppy. Not all pittosporums are that way inclined, but the one in the photo certainly is. Yes, lily of the valley is also a very strong scent, especially inside. I'm like that with daffodils and jonquils, and also hyacinths. They're ok out in the garden, but in a vase, I find them quite overpowering... :( Funny too how the Australians and New Zealanders say pittosporum. We put the emphasis on the 'tos' part of the word, but the New Zealanders put the emphasis on the 'spor' part. Just a little bit of useless trivia there that I thought you might be interested in... :)

You mean it gets too 'heady'? Some perfumes do that... I cannot sleep in a room that has a vase of lily of the valley in it. At least outdoors, the perfume is not so strong. - I am not familiar with Pittosporum, so I don't know how I'd react. ;-)

You wouldn't want to spend TOO much time sitting under the tree. I know Pittosporum has a lovely scent, but if you stay near it for too long, it can get too much after awhile... :(

How much do you charge by the hour? By the week? Any chance of lunch? - I am referring to sitting on the bench... ;-)

I wish each of you could spend a few minutes sitting here. The air is thick with the scent of these little white flowers, like a blend of gardenia and jasmine.
