Jasmine

Adding to my success with late-summer blooms, I’m delighted to see that my jasmine plant has blossomed again. 
The plant had blossomed once earlier in the summer, but I was in Morocco and so was unable to enjoy the flowers and their scent.  I was afraid I’d missed my chance  — but no!  There are a handful of buds in development, so I’m hopeful to have a steady string of blossoms for the next week or so.
The flowers are incredibly short-lived — they fall after only 24 hours — but they stay lovely for a few more days after falling, so I bring them inside and breathe in that intoxicating fragrance for as long as it lasts.  With the possible exception of gardenias, there’s nothing better than fresh jasmine on a warm summer’s night.
