Oh Linden Tree!

This tree makes me happy every summer....oh, how I love my Linden tree!  It's in full bloom right now...the blossoms are not showy...yet they have the most amazing, sweet, and dizzy scent. If I could, I would bottle the perfume and wear it every day! Once, I picked a basket full of blossoms and put them in my bath.  The aroma was intoxicating and luxuriant.  It was a treat until I drained the water from the tub...and ugh, what a terrific mess!!  So, I honestly can't recommend it, yet I chuckle that it was an idea I went through with, once upon a time...
And a close-up of the blossoms:
