Pink Jasmine


I bought my first jasmine vine from one of those wholesale garage warehouses.

I was turning the aisle and avoiding the smorgasborg of tempting treats that are pushed on all the surburbanites, when the fragrance hit me. Rising above the cumin smell of taquitos, and the tangy aroma raviolis in pesto, the fragrance of jasmine is addicting.

I couldn't stand to not bring it home with me immediately. I hoisted it in my cart, like a hunter bringing home a kill. I was very proud of my find.

Then I noticed the beauty of the bloom. Essentially a white blossom, the throat of the bell-like bloom is the palest flush of pink. It appears far too delicate to send out the fragrance that it does.

I admire that type of contrast. Overpowering scent combined with seductive fragility.

How very feminine.

I could have written this but it would not have been about the jasmine. But it would have been about a truly feminine aspect that blooms much more often than just in the spring LOL
