As I was dusting and changing clocks Saturday morning in my living room, I suddenly realized that there was a new fragrance in the room.
Sure enough, my jasmine officinale has begun to bloom. And as you can see from this crazy photo, (the jasmine blooms sandwiched between a couple of amaryllis leaves), there are just a few blossoms open.
Here’s the whole photo so that you can see how few blooms–and how many are yet to open.
Sometimes with very fragrant plants like this it’s best that the blooms only open a few at a time. Especially indoors, with no pollinators, and just me to enjoy this, small doses are best!
