My Gardenia Blooms

 

These flowers used to be permanent fixtures in my small garden. I had the lone shrub for years and it produces such lovely white flowers  every year. Some months ago, the leaves slowly turned yellow then they dried up to brittle brown ones. This afternoon, my son and I decided to finally put it to rest so what is left now is a small stump  of the trunk.

My gardenia is gone. All I have left are random photos  of its flowers. Funny but I still could smell their heady scents from here.

And here I thought it would be easy to create and start another blog. Starting all over again but that is the challenge of blogging. This is a continuation of my other blog called Dreams and Escapes. It is still a work in progress...

  2. Oh, I am indeed sorry you have lost this treasure. Is there any chance it might grow back from the root? Plants surprise us sometimes. How wonderful to have been able to grow and cut gardenias. I’ve only ever seen them in the florist shop. Their fragrance is heavenly. Wishing you the best of luck.

    • Thank you Kathryn. Hopefully, it would have new stems again but I am not so sure of it. Part of the trunk has dried up. I love those fragrant flowers too. they are so good as flower arrangement.

  6. I adore gardenias, and your photo of this one does it justice. I’m not a great gardener and I rarely take photos, so I’m enjoying your site. I hope your plant comes back.
