Heliotrope in the Moonlight

Come outside with me, said Mrs. Gibbs, and smell my heliotrope in the moonlight.

Neither of us knew, from the reading, what heliotrope looked like, nor how it smelled. It sounded intoxicating... it could be anything, really. It could be the most fantastic scent in the world: heliotrope in the moonlight. We sat and pondered the possibilities.

But the Gardener's Path says it smells like cherry pie.

I wonder if Mr. Wilder would agree.
