Mock Orange is finally blooming after 2 years. If you don't have one, make room in your garden for ... "One of the Sweetest-Smelling Flowering Shrubs". 

More about Mock Orange here: "Have you ever walked down a neighborhood, and got a whiff of sweet fragrance of citrus in the air? As you sniff your way towards this enchanting smell, you come across a privacy shrub with brown stems and waxy leaves. A closer look at the small white flowers, helps you confirm your doubts. It is a mock orange shrub." 

I want another one, maybe this, Philadelphus x virginalis 'Miniature Snowflake, of course it is a "double".

We had several Mock Orange bushes at the house we had when I was growing up. Such a wonderful smell!
