Osmanthus fragrans, 桂花, again

This morning, while walking through the campus, I suddenly became conscious of the fragrance of the osmanthus fragrans, 桂花.   At first I thought I was imagining things, since they were in bloom less than 2 months ago.  I didn’t know they can blossom so soon again.  Then I took a closer look.  The dead flowers are still on the branches.  In fact, the fresh flowers bloom among the dead ones.  Amazing.  

I am thankful anyway.
