Gardenia – January 18, 2019

Gardenia, NYC,  7.23.17

 

Friday is for flowers! And who doesn’t like flowers? 

“Sultry as a summer evening and as intoxicating as an exotic perfume, the scent of gardenias settles like a memory onto your soul. The blossoms are just as enticing. Buds shaped like seashells unfurl into velvet soft flowers in the warmth and humidity of early evening. But it’s the fragrance that captivates.”

Today’s photo is a Gardenia. Did you know that it is a member of the coffee family of plants? In China it is known as 子, and in Japan, it’s known as 梔 , I think……

Anyway, it’s a pretty flower. 

Have a Nice Day!
