When we moved into this house 30 years ago, I planted some Gardenia bushes. I think it was about 4 bushes. A couple of years later, I took some cuttings and grew them in pots until they had developed a good root system. Now I have Gardenia bushes along one side of my fence in the back yard (we have a huge back yard).
Anyway, they started blooming a few days ago. A heavenly scent greets me every time I open the back door. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.
