My family and I moved into a new house this past December, and my favorite bush was in bloom at that time because of our crazy warm Winter that we had over the past year. I was so happy to find a gardenia in front of our house, because I have wanted one over the past few years since I have learned the wonders of the scent of gardenias. Up until I discovered the smell of gardenias, the southern magnolia had been my favorite smell in nature.
This past week, my son told me that we had a new gardenia bloom on the bush, and over the next few days, over 50 blooms appeared on the bush. It is an olfactory delight, and I just wanted to encourage everyone out there to stick their nose in a Gardenia bloom this week to bring yourself this joy!
