Gardenia

White flowers are my favourite...



















...gardenia from the garden...

















...I like the scent of this sophisticated flower...

















...its fleshy petals...

















...the brilliant green of its leaves...

















...the sensuality of its candid flowers...

As you see no creative projects yet...Summer is the perfect time for me to contemplate...much more than to create!
Happy start of August!

Long time ago I got a Gardenia. Only one bloom. I put them in water and wait..and wait..and wait.... After 3 months the first root grew. And now, 2 years later, I have my own bush. But you need lots of patience ;)

Hi there!
Glad to hear that you are enjoying the summer and that you are resting. When the autumn comes there´s plenty of time to create again!
I´m taking some days off and I´m just going to relax.
Please, send me and e-mail with your address so I can send you the little dragonfly.
Probably I´m going to send it to you when I´m back at home again.
Have a nice week!
