Sickly sweet

Following the rains, the flowers that have not been there all summer long have begun appearing in profusion on the hyacinth beans. The produce an over-powering scent. Four o'clocks are doing the same thing, including the white one that doesn't bloom every year, but their aura of cheap soap is much more bearable. Not that I'm complaining about dolichos lablab. The hummingbirds, as always, prefer the Turk's caps, now also bursting forth as they have not done during all these harsh months.
