The Mock Orange, Western Syringa, is blooming. The blossom do look and smell like orange blossoms. Though the shrub has been cultivated into many gardens, we get to enjoy the bushes here as part of the forest landscape.
The new growth comes off of the older branches in straight shafts which were a favorite of the local indigenous people for use as arrows.
