Posts Tagged ‘Gardenia’

When I first got my little gardenia plants I read about planting and caring for them.  It was recommended that when a blossom comes out, that it is a good idea within a couple days to cut the flower and put in water indoors to enjoy for a few more days.  So I did just that with this first one, put it in a martini glass to set next to my computer where I can get a whiff of that wonderful Gardenia scent and enjoy the beauty of the white blossom.  I took some photos.  Enjoy.

A couple months ago I planted three small versions of Gardenia plants.  I knew they had to get settled before any blossoms would show up.  I watered them as they should be, especially when getting them started.  I have been waiting and watching them…kept waiting for a sign of the beautiful and fragrant white blossoms to show up.

Finally the first perfect white blossom …

I need, and want to continue the story of my recent journey to the writers’ retreat/workshop in Rowe, MA, and return journey, but I am in limbo on this one.     So many other things going on in my life right now, including…

I have been working on my personal transition which includes reading works which inspire and encourage me along the way.  As I read there are AHA moments which I write notes about so I can refer to them later.   One of the blessings from my trip and the workshop has created another positive shift in my transition.

This weekend I bought myself  three small gardenia plants to put in my front yard along the front of the porch.  They produce small, lovely white flowers and a light gardenia scent.  One single gardenia bloom reminds me of a time back in the 1970’s when I had a surgery.  When I woke I was already in my hospital room.  My bed faced the door, and as I woke, standing there in the doorway was my surgeon with a single gardenia in a small paper cup.  It was so beautiful, and the thoughtfulness of that doctor is a beautiful memory.
