You know it's September in the South

Beautiful, Beautiful Kudzu is in bloom. I wonder if most people know it actually
has a bloom? Zooming by on the highway, you'd never know.

(Actually late August, early September. But that wouldn't fit in the title.)

I love kudzu. It's like huge green leafy drapes everywhere you look.
The blooms smell like you walked into a giant piece of grape bubblegum.
My husband hates it and says it smells like deodorant cakes they put in men's urinals. I'm just going to have to take his word on that one. I don't want to know what they put in there.

I have only seen kudzu once and I never knew it bloomed or had a nice scent.
I don't think men can be trusted on smells. My hubby doesn't like the things I put out that smell nice, so I taking your word over your husbands on this one!


Ha! I love your husband's description. No, I ever knew it had a bloom or smell! Interesting!
