Jasmine (a re-visit)

BY SKEETER
 I am really happy the Confederate Jasmine is climbing high in my GEORGIA GARDENS.
 It has taken ahold of a low branch of a heavily pruned tree and is climbing up it just as I had planned. I hope it finds its way to the tree trunk as that is the next plan I have for it. I also plan to heavily prune the other sweet gum trees as well. 
The scent of thousands of sweet Jasmine blooms in the air is so intoxicating! It fills the house when the windows are open. But lately, the humidity in the air keeps the windows closed. Sigh, Oh well, I can enjoy the view through the window of JASMINE, In the Garden...

  1. My confederate jasmine blooms are gone now. They are something I look forward to every spring. I know you are going to miss this when you move to your new property.

    1. Flowerlady, the blooms are starting to fizzle out on me now but I have really enjoyed them. I am not moving anywhere any time soon. Tina is starting her new gardens at their newly purchased property though. I know we confuse people often with our dual posting :-)

  8. Mine is in bloom also. Smells the whole neighborhood. Sadly it will have to be trimmed severely when it's finished blooming.

  11. What a beautiful creature. You are so blessed to have her in your life, Skeeter. Is the fragrance similar to the greenhouse flower I see at White Flower Farm?

  12. This is my favorite scent and how lucky you are to have this wonderful flower blooming.

  13. Beautiful!
    I know the aroma is lovely!
    I just recently bought a Carolina Jasmine (Jessamine). I wanted to let it grow up a tree like yours, but my husband said, "No Way." That decision cost him $125.00 - the price of a new trellis for it to grow on!
    Love your gardens
