Gardenia Photos

August 11, 2010

We live in Mississippi and the heat has averaged 102 degrees with the heat index of 118-122 for the last couple of weeks. Anyone from the south knows we have some brutal humidity that goes along with those temperatures!


Our son, the soldier, and his family are home for a visit. He is on leave from Fort Riley, Kansas. I had taken many pictures of our gardenia bush this year and dreamed of experiencing that 10 foot tall bush, filled with blooms, with my granddaughter.

Little did I know that one special bloom appeared while they were home this week! I would never have believed it had my granddaughter not taken a picture to show me. I squealed with excitement and told her how to pick the precious bloom. We have really enjoyed sharing the heavenly fragrance of the single gardenia bloom in the 100 degree, Mississippi summer days!

Gardenias bring me much pleasure! This is the first time in over 50 years that I have my very own gardenia. New blooms have been gathered and brought in each day!
