The linden trees lining the street next to my work building have started to bloom, filling the neighborhood with their deliciously sweet scent.
The linden, also known as the lime or basswood tree, is famous in central Europe, where it appears in legends and poetry.
If only there were some way to send you the scent. Instead, I’ll show you a map with a few Olympia linden locations I’ve noticed over the last few weeks. I revised this on 7/20 with a little more detail and a few more trees.
