Jasmine

I love jasmine. The beautiful simplicity of the flowers, the combination of he darkest green foliage through to the delicate pinks and then the creamiest of whites. But most of all I love the fragrance.

When I came looking for the house I now live in I was followed by the fragrance - it came to me in dreams and at the weirdest moments. Now that I am here I understand. My neighbor has a jasmine out the front of her house - and I am sure she must have one out the back - so at this time of the year I feel I am swathed in jasmine.

It is through the lounge and my bedroom, it wafts through the bathroom. It is everywhere and I am in heaven :-)
