Flowers A-Z: J is for...

...Jasmine

I have two types of jasmine.  One is the vine pictured above, and the other is some creeping type that hasn't made flowers yet, although I hope it will someday.  Jasmine is best known for its lovely scent, and I have to admit, it is one of my favorites.  There's nothing like sitting outside and getting a whiff of jasmine!  The only downside is it doesn't last long.  Already the flowers on ours have turned brown.  So sad.  Jasmine likes sun but will get fried if there's too much.  Picky, picky!

We also have little junipers growing in the frontyard, but they are brown!  We're not sure what happened to those guys.  Maybe they'll perk back up; maybe we've already lost them.  Time will tell, but I figured a picture of an ugly dead plant isn't worth posting.

  1. Our Jasmine has put on the same show. Beautiful white blossoms soaked up the sun, then they got too picky and decided it was too much. Now many have turned brown. At least they still smell great!
    Love hearing about all your plants...I can't believe you guys have so many!
