one of my favorite things
Gardenias are probably my favorite scented flower. I remember my mom cutting a blossom off of our gardenia bush and floating it in a bowl in the dining room. It would scent the entire house. Well, gardenias do not grow in Virginia, so I am unable to have that lovely aroma in my house. However, in the spring, we do get some beautiful lilacs. These are from my neighbor's bush. (I asked first!) I clipped them last evening and they smell heavenly. I may have to buy a bush so I can clip from my own in future years! Happy Friday!
