Outdoor Wednesday


Susan invites you to join her and other participates to a grand outdoor party.  Many interesting sights await you at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com
This was a bloom I took from my neighbors gardenia bush.  I love the way they make things smell.  After the bloom died, I left the greenery in water.  After a few days it rooted. I did not have a gardenia bush.

After a few weeks, I HAD THE START OF MY BUSH.
The first bud on my new bush. The bush is much larger now.
This is my very first gardenia flower.

I love gardenias and their beautiful scent, LV. They will not grow here in Colorado as our winters are too cold.

Such a beautiful bloom, and the satisfaction of propagating it yourself! I was lucky enough to smell one when visiting a friends home few months ago.

Oh my, I love your gardenia plant. What a beautiful blossom! You did a great job creating this new plant. I wish we could grow them here, but alas our winters are too long and cold.

Your "sense of humor" story brought a huge smile to my face. What a fun way to start my day.

The heat managed to dry up most of our blossoms, but there are still a few hardy ones. My lavender Rose Of Sharon is looking quite beautiful now.

Well, it's tine for me to do a few things around here before the temps get up into the 90's. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I love the smell of Gardenias! Wonderful that you were able to root your own bush. They are only an annual here.

Wow. I love gardenias, but I sure didn't know you could do that. Thanks for the tip.
