While we were in Newquay, one scent kept invading our olfactory lobes. a sweet, flowery scent wafted in the breeze, making us look around to try to locate the source of this pleasant odour. It turned out to be the millions of flowers belonging to the Cabbage Trees (Cordyline australis), otherwise known as Cabbage Palms or Torquay Palms. We have one in our own garden, which has flowered for the first time this year.
Reseda lutea) which are flowering around Shipley Park right now, have a slight fragrance if you get close enough, but is, frankly, not in the same league as the garden cultivar. Still good to look at though!
