Those Quick Blooming Mock Oranges

The mock oranges surprised me by blooming yet again in early January this year, around January 3rd to the 7th, with the peak on the 5th or 6th. They had bloomed a couple of months ago, and I was so upset that I didn't get better pics of them while they were in full bloom.  It's dubious that I actually did get better pics, but I keep trying!  

Mock orange blossoms bloom quickly - kind of like mayflies. Gotta catch 'em while they're doing something. Usually the fragrant air along the Baldwin Estate in Haiku and the falling blossoms are a dead giveaway.  Trees all over Haiku and Paia were also blooming at the same time.  Maybe they'll bloom again in two months!
