Simple Pleasures: Gardenias

So happy to see that the gardenia bushes in our backyard are blooming again. The flowers are so beautiful and the leaves so shiny!

I'm not much for flowery scents but I do like how these smell!

When I see gardenias, I always think of my husband's grandmother who passed away a few summers ago. She was quite a gardener. Andy's parents have a gardenia bush in their yard that she started with a gardenia from a corsage.

These bushes were at the end of their blooming season when we moved here last year. I'm looking forward to enjoying them all season long this year!
