Gardenia

The gardenias are no longer flowering in our yard, so I really miss the smell of them floating over to my patio chair!

Remember the perfume, Jungle Gardenia? I use to love it but now find it too strong. Wish I could grow the real thing but I've never been able to.

Love gardenias, petunias, and magnolias....basically any flower that ends with an "a" LOL! Would you believe rose is at the bottom of my favorites? Oh, and BTW, Christine really sprayed on that Jungle Gardenia when she went out on a date, heehee.

Hmmmm, I can smell the gardenia by just looking at your pic! A beautiful summer smell!

Do you have star jasmine in FL?
It smells very similar, just not as strong!
I knew it was June in San Jose, when the whole
valley had that fragrance!

Aw, this brings back a nice memory. My mom wore a gardenia as a corsage for my wedding.

My favorite flower and fragrance! I can't grow them up here as well as I did in Savannah!
