    I love the scent of jasmine in the garden, especially at night.

  3. etikser says:

    Those are so pretty!

  4. Jet Eliot says:

    Thanks for this moment of summer sweetness, Eliza.

  5. The scent of jasmine is so evocative of childhood Spring evenings for me – lovely image!

  6. Iโ€™m SO impressed that you get jasmine to bloom indoors!

  7. Karen Lang says:

    A touch of Spring in the air? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, the signs point to it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Jasmines, like gardenias, aren’t hardy here, but are sold as potted plants. I was lucky to get the last one in the store!

  8. Mmmm I can smell the jasmine ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Delicate and dramatic all rolled into one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reblogged this on Blue Dragon Journal and commented:
    Such a little innocent white flower; such a huge magnificent fragrance!

  16. Treah Pichette says:

    I wish I could smell that! I love the middle shot with sun & shadows so contrasting.

  17. Now I know Jasmine doesn’t grow in my garden so I know it doesn’t in yours either. But the sight of this flower has my heart just sighing. Happy Sunday, Eliza!! xo

  18. Lovely compositions and lighting, Eliza, especially the first capture!

  19. Alice says:

    Jasmine is so intoxicating. In the 2 nd photo, one of the blooms has only 4 petals & to it’s left there’s a 6 petal bloom…does that vary on the plant?

  20. Very Nice Eliza! Enjoyed seeing them!

  21. Little beauties! That top photo is especially fine.

  22. arlingwoman says:

    It looks lovely. There are winter blooming jasmine in the landscape where I work and their scent gets sucked in through the air intake!

  23. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Beautiful macros Eliza and I love the smell of Jasmine, so lovely to see them bloom in Winter! xxx

  24. A beautiful respite from the snow we are getting here today! But, it’s off to Florida to visit family tomorrow … bet I’ll see some flowers and be able to smell them too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Widdershins says:

    Jasmine – ambrosia for the senses. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Kris Peterson says:

    Few things smell better!

  27. Spring is approaching, lovely!

  28. Jasmine has such a lovely scent. I see that you purchased this at Trader Joe’s. I’ve been buying flowers there for a while. Good prices and usually generous with the bunches. I have no idea whether their suppliers use Neonicotinoids like some of the other places. Probably not an issue for indoor plants.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Good point and important to think about. This one was sourced from Canada, so don’t expect they’d need neonocs, which tend to be used on outdoor perennials. I like that TJs buys Rainforest Alliance certified flowers.

  29. Joanna says:

    Oh my goodness that must be just heavenly!!! โค I adore Jasmine but my sister is allergic to the fragrance so I can't have it.

  31. Lovely photos and reminder that flower season will be arriving soon!๐Ÿ™‚

  32. What a gift from nature is that heady scent of jasmine. Wish it could be transported through the ether ๐Ÿ˜Š
    The most heavenliest of flower scent Iโ€™ve come across is a Namaqua Gethylis koekamakranka – it has a non-descript flower but the scent is exquisite. Nature has so many wonderful aspects.

    Lovely photos Eliza, and your sunspace sounds to be most delightful and the potted flowering plants on the cusp of spring seem to think so too!
