Not really chat but I don't know where else to put it! Smells gorgeous. I've walked past it for years and never known what it is.

There's a great app for identifying plants and insects -Seek by iNaturalist

Name changed for this as I don't want to identify myself, but I'm just buying a house on a street called Limetree Walk and this post has made me so excited! Lol

Thank you! But why is it a lime tree but doesn't produce limes? Wouldn't that be lovely?

So glad I know.

Will also look at that app thanks.

It's also known as a linden/lind tree. Lime is just a corruption of lind. No actual limes, but you can make tea from the flowers.

There's a Jo Malone perfume called French Lime Blossom that captures the fragrance quite nicely
