Scent Trap

Walking in from my car the last few days I've been stopped in my tracks by a fragrance. I then am further delayed while I look around for the flower that caused it. (Yes, I'm a stop and smell the flowers kind of person.) But I hadn't found it. Then, yesterday at lunch my bosses were discussing how much they love the Russian olive trees that grow near the parking lot because they smell so good. So, this morning, when I stopped to smell, I looked up instead of down. I know what a Russian olive looks like, but the tree also has tiny yellow flowers that I'd missed. So, you get a photo of the Russian olive scent trap that I keep falling into.
