Twinkling in the moonlight
The humidity is rising in Auckland,
the days are long and sunny and summer
is most definitely in the air.
I was presented two perfect gardenias from a friend
who had just clipped them from her garden.
Heaven....I quickly popped them into a favourite vase
and have had them next to my bed ever since.
It is just amazing how the fragrance can so quickly permeate the air.
You feel transcended.
I have gardenias growing in my garden at the moment.
I always hesitate to touch them because they are so beautiful
to look at in the evening.
Even from my window at night
I can see them twinkling in the moonlight.
It is a welcoming sight...
It is hard to duplicate the fragrance but I think Jo Malone
gets pretty close with her Vintage Gardenia Cologne.
A nice touch on those cold winter days as well when
you are longing for these creamy white flowers.
