Odoriferous

Whew! I tolerated this for about a day and half in my office before I banished it to the lobby. I think I'm still smelling this bloom.

Not familiar with the flower or it's odor, but it is lovely! Terrific capture, too! Hope your weekend is going well, Sally!

This is one gorgeous lily bloom, and your macro shot of it is awesome with the lighting and beautiful colors. I bet the odor was strong. Lovely capture. Have a nice holiday.

Good ole Stargazers! So gorgeous but you can smell them a mile away. I like them -- just not up close. :)

Oh, a lily. Yes, most of them aren't particularly sweet-smelling, but they're sure gorgeous. The person who can combine the beauty of a lily with the perfume of a carnation or a hyacinth will be rich beyond belief. LOL
