For the majority of the year we have this pesky vine. A bundle of leaves on a stalky, rapid growing vine.
For about a month or so of the year, the green leafy wall is replaced with this bright, fragrant wall of sweet smelling star-shaped flowers that fills our courtyard.
But during other times, the vine forces it’s way between gaps and cracks of fences and trellises, which results in me having to climb a ladder with sharp objects, dodging the cut-ends that produce milky, sticky sap.
However if you’re in possession of, or know how to make a steam distillery, then you may be able to concoct something nice to remember the fragrance year-round.
