-I woke up by the fragrance of sweet olives this morning.
I'm feeling so good today because of the perfume.
-I hear that they call a sweet olive as a tree of "gui" in China.
And sweet olive flowers are called "gui hua".
Both gui hua jiu (liquor of gui hua) and gui hua cha (tea with gui hua)
smell very good.
I have read that the whole city of Guilin is filled with sweet smells
of gui hua in season.
-I feel it's a gift of Nature to encourage us to enjoy a blink of
very wonderful time between the long, harsh summer and
the cold, severe winter.
