When Wayne and I were married and bought our first home on Hudson Drive, we planted some gardenias on one side of our house. Then a few years ago, we bought a new house and when we consulted a landscaper, imagine my sheer happiness when he mentioned, "Let's add a few gardenias to the mix." This summer, we added a flower bed around the pool and Wayne suggested gardenias because he knew how much I loved them.
And now? It's summer time again and guess what's blooming around my front door and around the pool in the back? You guessed it! Summer has arrived!!
Here is a pic of the flower bed around the pool area.
