Beauty Bush

The daphne bush is fading and the beauty bush is just about to burst.  The first tiny blossoms are opening and the bees are already buzzing about - they seem to come for miles.

If the taste is anything like the perfume I would love to try the honey a colony of bees could make from these flowers!
