Day 116 — Gestures

gestures — April 26

I'm not sure what these flowers are called but they smell amazing. At first I thought Gestures was burning some candles whose scents seeped out of the doors. Turns out it was all nature, baby.

It was a beautiful day to spend downtown, traipsing up and down South Main with the fabulously pseudonymous FearlessVK, taking care of some crucial business and stuffing our faces with greasy, overpriced Arcade food.

Tomorrow night's the monthly art trolley tour. I can't make it, naturally, but if you're free you should check it out and enjoy the last non-sweltering art tour of the year. Be sure to tell the gallery owners that it sure would be cool if the undead and the living could come together to view art as a community. Hell, Jay Etkin thinks it's a good idea, so you should too.

I think that's honeysuckle, which is in full bloom this time of the season. We have a bunch growing behind our apartments and it smells heavenly.

I used to live in an apartment that had a large amount of honeysuckle growing right outside my bedroom window. Waking up to that smell has to be as close to heaven as it comes.

Is it honeysuckle? I've seen the standard white-and-yellow honeysuckle (the kind you can get the nectar out of) growing elsewhere, but I had no idea this might be honeysuckle too.

Anyway, you're right — smells like absolute heaven. Makes me want to plant some near my nightstand. :)

also i was wondering how on earth you managed to take this picture without me noticing, but then i realized it must have been snapped after i left. i was going to marvel at your guerilla photography skills.

I wish I had a closer shot of the flower because it looks like Privet to me. My mom's favorite smelly slower bush. We have a tree in our back yard and it is heavenly. The beauty of privet is, it stays around for a little while. When it is hot outside you can smell it from a mile away.

Edit to say slower=flower in "i've been typing up transcriptions for the past 3 hours and can't proofread for shit" speak.

I see where you'd get Privet, but I'm fairly certain that it's Star jasmine (a.k.a. Confederate Jasmine) that has been trained. Not a native plant (at least as far as I can tell), but not hard to find and smells absolutely wonderful.

Fearless, I hope you can find a shirt in time! That would be awesome. And my guerilla photography skills are like my standard photography skills — practically nonexistent. :)

La, I don't know if it's privet, but I LOVE that word. "Privet." It's almost as good as "cellar."

Justin, I think we may have a winner. Thanks! Now I need a yard so I can plant that and honeysuckle and privet.

hmmmm, seems I need some star jasmine to complement my honeysuckle and privet.
