Thanks, Betsy! There is a story behind these tall shrubs. When my hubby and I bought this 15-acre property in 1998, the yard of the old house had a stump about the diameter of my forearm, but a sprout was growing up from the base. I figured it must be a weed tree that the former owner had tried to exterminate. But I let the sprout grow out of curiosity to see what it was, and this beautiful white-flowered shrub resulted. When we built our new house, divided the property, and sold off the old house, I brought four seedlings with me from that bush to the new place. This is one of them. I still have no idea why the former owner tried to kill the bush. A little bit crazy, I suspect.

I love these trees, especially when the wind blows gently through them, swaying the delicate flowers.

Congrats on the nice AC, too.

I appreciate your taking a look and commenting, Wanda! I have four of these bushes, which I raised from seeds. It's only been the last two or three years they've been big enough to bloom.

Thanks, Arlene! I do have some pans of large sections of the yard in previous years in my gallery; unfortunately some parts have since fallen into neglect and not all are as pretty as I'd like them to be.

Kathy I would love to see a photo of your yard as I believe it must have a wealth of beautiful flowers, and shrubs.
