Meet my gardenia. I hadn't gardened for quite some time until 2020, due to all the travel. But being in one place called for some plants, and living in a sub-tropical climate called for some plants to remind me of the places I love.? ? The fragrance of gardenias reminds me of Mexico, Central America, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands all at once. ? ? I'm besotted, and the fragrance reminds me of so many tropical places I love while It's not possible for me to visit.
