Jasmine and Oleander
I glanced at some pink oleander waving in the wind beckoning me to go out and fetch. So I did. I am so fortunate to have a tall Oleander bush growing in the back of my yard in a secluded corner. The wind was blowing and it was the very end of the day, so Ginger and I ventured out quickly. She bounded out happily since I had only been home for an hour. For her this was a real treat. It turned out to be a treat for both of us. I cut the flowers and then as I did my neighbor approached the fence to talk and I gave her some of my Jasmine which she admired so much. She was surprised, but I thought I had so much. A whole fence full from top to bottom. We chatted and caught up for a while and then I finished getting my Jasmine. Now they grace my table and brighten the house. Between today's Jasmine and yesterday's Gardenias that I brought home from a friend's house, their fragrance fill the air. Thought I would share my bounty. Happy indeed.
