Sweet smell in the air…

Walking through one of my favorite places, The Bonnet House courtyard in Ft. Lauderdale, a strong, sweet aroma beckoned toward this quiet beauty, a Gardenia in bloom. The leaves are evergreen. The beauty of the flower and it’s radiating perfume will linger quite awhile in my heart. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
Each week I visit this piece of paradise, so I will continue to enjoy the continued blooms of this Gardenia plant. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
A closeup of the Gardenia flower, towards the end of it’s bloom cycle is a bit messy in design. But the perfume continues quite profusely. There is no smell of coffee here (that would be a conflicting odor) but Gardenias are part of the coffee family. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
