Orange-colored olive trees 金木犀

Tokyo is filled with a sweet fragrance of the orange-colored olive trees. The aroma is intense and everywhere. These beautiful flowers bloom in fall in Japan, and it is one of the symbols of the autumn season. When I lived in Ashiya as a child my house was surrounded by those lovely flowers. Every fall I would pick some fallen blossoms, put them in a tin can to take it everywhere with me. Once in a while at school I open the can to smell the sweet aroma. Even in SoCal, the heaven of the beautiful flowers do not have those flowers. I am in Japan, indeed!
