I was in OH at my uncle's house doing a little work
this last week and had a few suprises.
The first and most unbelievable was a little plant I
had forgot was even there. On the patio last year in
the containers were several "tropicals" that were
planted into the ground at the end of summer. I had
several things like tropical hibiscus, Purple Fountain
Grass (Penneseum setraseuem), ivy geramniums, etc.
Well, I had one pot of Tulbaghia violacea variegaata. 
It is the only thing there that could be coming up
with that fragrance. 
It appears that the whole clump is returning.
This is all astounding because it was planted in pure
clay with minimum drainage in the winter. 
I will leave it in place to see what transpires.
