jasmine

Hubby bought two jasmine plants for me not long after I got here. They have moved with us and hung in there pretty well but I think they finally found a place they really like. 
 I finally found the right amount of light and shade for them and they have bloomed so well this summer! They smell great, too!

*edit* For those who asked, the 'right amount' of light is just a few hours of morning sun and complete shade the rest of the day!

So they are outside? Can you pick the flowers to make tea? Wish I had flowers growing outside right now.... Do you get real winter in July and August there?

Your jasmine is so pretty and I'm glad you found the right spot for them. I don't have any luck with plants indoors or out!
