Gardenia

A pure white gardenia (not camellia as I first thought!).
I snapped this in someone's garden as I was walking past on the weekend.
They really are perfection, aren't they?

  1. So gorgeous Thea! I thought it was a gardenia when I first saw the pic and instantly had that scent of gardenia in my nose. But I love camellia's too! Such beautifully abundant trees. My parent's camellia's always seem to be in bloom :o) xo

  2. Oh no, Julie!! I think you're right. I don't know why I had camellia in my head, I'm pretty sure it IS a gardenia!!
    Oooops....off to change the title.

  5. These are my absolute favourite (along with frangipani's) - talk about prompts for memories.
    Looking at your picture I can actually feel the velvety softness of it's petals under my fingertips along with the heady scent filling my nose.
    Lovely x
