sweetshrub in coffee mug

I could have fiddled with these stems forever to position them better, but, for today, this is the best I could do. This is snippets of sweetshrub harvested from the lower portions of larger branches, which I was harvesting for a workshop. The payoff in recording this (for me) is in 1) creating a record of when sweetshrub blooms, and 2) getting to smell the fragrance of the bark as I inadvertently abraded it. Websites say the name of the shrub comes from the fragrance of flowers, but, for the life of me,  I can find no fragrance in this shrub's mahogany-colored flowers--only in its bark.
