The garden is blooming


Spring is definitely here and the star jasmine I planted less than a year ago has bloomed spectacularly! It's reached the top of the fence and burst into life literally overnight with a mass of flowers spilling down the wire creating a cascading wall of perfume!

I love this flower so, so much. The smell is wafting up into the house. It reminds me of some exotic, oriental land.

I only planted one for every panel, and while some I've trained to go sideways, others have only grown up, so I'm thinking a few more in between will do the trick and by this time next year, it will be a complete wall of mass flowers.

Sooo exciting, and so satisfying!
