Your pretty flower is Hesperis Matronalis, Dame's Rocket. It blooms freely here in the spring and fills the air with its wonderful fragrance. In some places it is considered invasive, but I really enjoy it.

Every day I look for your latest picture, it's been great seeing them. Thanks for the show.

Thanks, Mary, I thought it might be Dame's Rocket. It is a lovely bloomer. I cut the blossoms before they could set seed as realize that Dame's Rocket can be invasive. I think it might have come from my sister who grows many native plants.

Glad you are enjoying the daily show.
