Daphne odora



Daphne odora was another flower that Dad grew.  Both Dotsy and I have tried to grow it here in Texas, but without much success.  Daphne odora is one of the sweetest smelling plants around.  It is better than a gardenia.  Papa also would cut some of the tiny flowers for us on Sundays, to pin on our dresses.

hi AnnieB! I just got your response on my blog about Florence, Italy. I wonder if I know your daughter and never knew it! I ride down Via dei Pepi fairly often (when I am not secluding myself in my studio space). Call me when you get in (or SMS) 334.245.0129

Thanks,
Kelly
