This gardenia is right at our back door, and this is the first year it has really produced a lot of blooms. I think it is about 4 or 5 years old, and has been a very slow grower, but has finally been worth it!
We use this door the most frequently, and every time I've walked in or out, I just want to stand there for a moment and enjoy the amazing fragrance!
I find myself walking over to it and breathing in deeply and thinking...
Gardenias...(sniffs)...smell...(sniffs)...soooo... (sniffs)... good!
I planted some lilacs this year too, and am really excited to hopefully enjoy them soon also!
