Jasmine

If only you could smell this...

Last night after work I trekked to Lowe's once again. Lowe's has never been on my list of favorite places to buy plants, but this year their selection and prices are the best. I purchased three large lavender plants, some Irish moss and a Japanese painted fern for terrariums, and a Star Jasmine bush. The scent of jasmine wafted through the outdoor space and drew me in. As a bonus, it was on the half price rack. I've never planted anything like this before, so I hope it continues to grow and proliferate in my back yard. The plant is only hardy to 32 degrees, so it will have to live inside this coming winter (provided I can keep it alive that long!!).

When I visited my friend in Tennessee her neighbors had a Jasmine vine on their pergola. It was so pretty and green and covered the entire thing. I would love to see what it smelled like. Perhaps I could use one of those around my canopy on the deck.
