I don't know about you but I love the smell of Gardenias! Usually they bloom the first of June, this year they started early. One of my bushes bloomed a full week before the others.This bush is right out side of my window and beside the screened-in porch. It is heavenly to smell on a nice evening relaxing outside! When Sweet Mama and I returned yesterday from Atlanta, the bushes in the front yard were beginning to bloom. So pretty!! I took my trusty scissors and cut a few blooms to have in the house. You have to be careful cutting them as they will turn brown from the oils in your skin! It can be kind of tricky!
The good news is that there are plenty more to come!
