Day 44 ~ One Year, One Nose


I have no idea what these flowers are, but they do have a scent. A lovely scent. There was no marking on the container indicating what they were when I purchased them at the nursery, so I'm going blind here.

The flowers are otherworldly. Stunning. Alien. Delicate. Fragile. The color is the palest of blues. So beautiful. The scent? The scent is cool and sweet and sits very close to the flower. You literally have to put your nose against its petals to smell it, but wow, what a scent! Like violets but not so sweet. A bit like clover as well, yet so very, very demure and quiet.

*Update: They are Columbine! The state flower of Colorado, and they come in many colors.
