  1. I can imagine the perfume!

  2. Anne says:

    I too have this growing in the garden and find the scent an absolute joy in the early evenings.

  4. Totally exquisite…

    Morning Eliza. At last some flowers, although looks like they might be indoors?
    My nasturtium seedlings are 2 inches high now and I had an impulse buy in supermarket yesterday for a couple of osteospurnams.

      Yes, I have a nice indoor garden space that gets me through the long winter. Only thing in bloom outside are snowdrops, but more is coming. I saw some solitary bees yesterday, so things are moving along, hurrah. 🙂

    Oh how beautiful!! ❤
    I love jasmine, it's one of my favourite flowering plants, but I can't have it in my garden because it gives my husband hayfever! :/

    On my daily walks, I used to smell the fragrance of jasmine from a historic house built in 1743. Then new development and new owners moved in, and the fragrance disappeared…

  8. Alice says:

    Cascading aroma. There were 2 Jasmine plants in the nursery greenhouse 2 weeks ago. Such a lovely scent & delicate flowers.

  9. If only we could smell it along with looking at its beautiful flowers. 🙂

    I can almost smell it…..

  11. Jasmine is a Southern favorite and the perfume fills the air in Spring.

  12. Lovely photo Eliza. I am imagining the scent right now!

  14. A lovely white froth to tide you over until flowers are blooming outside.

  15. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Beautiful flowers Eliza, I can just imagine their delicate scent!

  16. Irene says:

    Bet the smell is just as lovely as the blossoms.

  17. Kris P says:

    I remember you mentioning this plant. Are you growing it inside?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, inside only here as we’re a zone too cold to overwinter. We got lucky this winter as they often sell out in a single day. Quite popular!

  18. naturebackin says:

    Jasmine definitely does epitomize spring. I see from the comments that you grow it inside. Here it is totally rampant and on the margins of the plantations behind our place it grows in great tangled ropes – the scent in spring is almost overpowering especially at dusk.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, we are in a zone too cool to grow it here outside, so I’m happy when I find a hanging planter for sale in winter. I love the scent, but at this size it doesn’t overwhelm. Growing wild, it sounds like its scent must be amazingly heavy.

  19. Beautiful delicate blossoms. The way everyone is commenting it would be nice to smell internet! It would have to be selective! 😀

  20. Beautiful image Eliza! Enjoyed seeing it!

  22. Rupali says:

    Wow! I could feel the fragrance.

  23. Did you know that the word jasmine comes down to us from Persian? Another form of the word in English is jessamine.

  24. Brenda says:

    I’ve been looking for some jasmine to grow inside–where did you find it Eliza?

  25. Dishita says:

    These are fine captures, Eliza! Jovial Jasmine! 🌸

  26. rajkkhoja says:

    Lovely . I like jasmine. It’s very sweet.

  27. Jet Eliot says:

    What a pleasant treat to see and almost smell this magnificent flower, Eliza. I so love jasmine.

  28. So pretty. It looks like you’ve brought the outdoors indoors 😊.

  29. dawnbirdau says:

    Hi Eliza … I’m back. I know this perfume so well!

  30. I’ve never smelled, or seen for that matter, jasmine. I’ve heard that the tea has some health benefits but I’ve not sipped it yet either. Your image is a great advertisement for its beauty.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you kindly, Steve. Jasmine is a fine treat that comes in the depths of winter right when we need a boost. Sadly, not hardy here, but Trader Joes delivers plants right on time every year. 🙂
      Coincidentally, Jasmine Green tea happens to be my favorite. 😀
