Scent of a garden

 On this August visit, there is an abundance of White Cempaka flowers in the garden.  These highly scented creamish flowers is the source of one of the most expensive perfume in the world called  'Joy'.  Earlier in May I have thrown lots of fertiliser at the plant base and after a period of more than 2 months have resulted in an exuberance of flowers and fragrance in the garden.  The flowers have attracted butterflies too, especially the Eggfly Butterfly as shown in the pix below.

The Cempaka Putih tree is planted somewhere in the middle of the garden, partly shown at the top left section of the picture above.
