I love gardenias. It's my favorite flower! This morning, I picked bunches of gardenias from my gardenia bushes in the yard. My husband had propagated several bushes from one bush years ago and each year, they get bigger and have more flowers. The flowers are so fragrant that it makes the each room smell great! We often give a bouquet of them to our neighbors. As a child, my window was near a gardenia bush and whenever I opened my window, I could smell them. And when I was older, I used to bring them to work and the whole hall where my office was located had the gardenia scent. It's amazing how nature produces such a sweet lovely scent....

Here are a couple bunches I grabbed this morning (I took the pic late tonight.) They still look good. I just noticed the tomatoes behind them (from the tomato plants we planted weeks ago.)

Ugh, I don't even have blossoms on my tomato plants yet!

Nature is sooo amazing
I am also shocked by how fragrance can create a memory

Those look very pretty and I'm jealous that I can't smell them.

I was weeding the front flower bed the other day and was wishing your husband was here to verify some things that I couldn't tell if they were weeds or flowers not yet blooming! :)
