Laurustinus (Viburnum tinus)

The beautiful delicate flowers of the Laurustinus, an evergreen bush that can be found in most gardens here in Turkey.  It is also extremely popular with all the pollen gathering insects and hum and shudder as you walk past them at the moment.  Later in the season the bush will be laden with blue-black small berry type fruits which have a small stone in the centre.
