"Magic perfume fills the air"

Okay; so we're not On Broadway, but there's magic perfume all the same. Despite some over-warm days and some rain, the two clumps of dumped paperwhites continue to bloom, now joined by the first of the Montopolis and Bastrop narcissi, the former with blunt-ended wide perianths and the latter with narrower, longer perianths. The former have pale yellow bubble cups, almost half a sphere; the cups of the latter are smaller and more yellow, with a bit of crinkle. Potted nasturtiums now in bloom are pale moon yellow and profuse. What lettuce and peas have survived nibbling by creatures are highly ornamental.
