My Moonflower Doesn't Smell Like I Thought It Would...
I got my first moon flower blossom tonight. I began these seeds in February, and have been eagerly awaiting the creamy white blooms and heavenly scent I keep hearing of...I even felt like ordering a drumroll, Clark Griswold-style before bending down to smell the flower.
It doesn't smell like much of anything. Well, if I stick my nose right in, I catch a faint whiff of something that smells like plastic.
Even worse, I think it's just me. My husband says he can smell it and that it smells like a really good air freshener.
What's wrong with my nose? I'm so bummed. I'll keep sniffing the blooms as they open this summer, but I'm starting to think I don't have the can-smell-moonflowers gene.
Just letting off some steam...thanks for your sympathy.
