The migraine inducing sinus pressure.
Jasminus Polyanthus. (I think. I looked up the proper name once and I think that is it.)
If you click on the picture and enlarge it you'll notice all the fat pink buds surrounding the flowers and climbing higher into the tree.
With just these few flowers, I'm already suffering, although not too badly.
Once the vine is in full bloom however, I'll have to be very, very careful about opening the house. Not too early in the mornings, close up again about 4pm.
The scent from these is released at dusk and stays heavily in the air all night and well into the morning.
This particular plant is climbing a tree just over the back fence where our communal washing lines are. Quite close to my back door.
It means holding a hanky to my nose to filter my air as I walk to the bus in the mornings.
I don't care how silly I look, nor do I care what people may think.
I'll filter my air and minimise the headaches as much as I can.
