Update on the mystery flower

Last week I posted this photo of a flower that I did not know the name of:

Vivian Parks emailed me with the name of the flower and a little more information as well.  Thank you Vivian!

re. the lovely photo of the plant you couldn't identify, I thought you might like to know that it's a Chimonanthus praecox - common name, Winter Sweet....and the only reason I know that is because it's one of my favorite flowers!  If you want to propagate it, spring layering works better than summer cuttings, although it can take many months for roots to form.  Also, a neat trick is to grow Clematis up them so that they have flowers later in the season.
