My Favorite Smell in the World!!


I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!! Why? Because my beloved STAR JASMINE VINES are in full bloom gracing my courtyard with their heavenly scent! The second you open the gate, you get a gorgeous whiff of this divine plant that God must have created just for me! I love it! It makes my day and I could stay out there sniffing all day long. I even add it to my flower arrangements in the house to give them a little boost in scent. Aah! And don't be jealous, if you haven't planted this fab plant in your garden, come on over and have a seat in the courtyard and start breathing in this wonderful aroma. :-)

Oh OUCH!! Poor Annelise's nose! How in the world do kids do that?!! Fascinating. I am sorry! I will have to come smell your jasmine vines, I don't recall that I know that smell! it sounds like I'm missing out. Great deal on your piano!! I think a man on the piano is pretty sexy, so I can see where Jos is going with it! I'll be sure to point you out in RS next time they need a sub. Oh, the running off stage & driving to the graveyard story was so so hilarious!! Drama!

Yeah, maybe if I had a house! So, yes, I'm jealous! They look great! I can just imagine the smell. Maybe I will come over and take a wiff :)

I definately agree. I have Jasmine vines all along my backyard wall, and not only do they grow up and out beautifully, but like you said, the sent is intoxicating! Hooray for spring!

Oh I could definately do with some good sniffs right about now! I have to take full advantage of having my 5th sense back while it lasts! I still remember when you sprayed those vines for bugs and you were so crushed because they smelled anything but heavenly!

I'm not sure I can even picture what these smell like wither, but you sure do make them sound good.

Also, you will love having a piano in the house. It was the first thing Josh and I bought after we were married and I love it. I am not a "play the piano for anyone" either, but I'm glad we have it for FHE and now Kylee is taking lessons and it is a wonderful sound in our home.

Congratulations

I love jasmine!!! We had a bush under our front window and I, like you, loved it when it would bloom. We had someone come last fall to do some out door clean up and he pulled out my jasmine, that had been growing into a fine plant for four years. Ya, I am still not over it! sigh!
