Its scent is so subtle and delicately floral. Quite beautiful. Did you know it lookes like this. The hops vine grows on our garage trellis just behind the wood oven and recieved a small pruining when the Gnomes dropped by. We're not using the hops for brewing (maybe someday) but the Gnomes will give it a shot.
Such a pretty flower, like a fat grub, with the yellow pollen sitting at the base of the petals of the cone like structure.
