Pink is like Red, but not quite.


White Gardenias

White Gardenias, summer scent,
as coolness comes, the day is spent.
We sit on porch swings, as we sway~
the crickets chirp, it makes my day.

My Gardenias are blooming, and I pick fresh ones everyday.  They are my favorite summer flower.  My mama doesn't like them, so my husband always takes her a "bouquet" of Gardenia LEAVES every summer.  No blossoms allowed.  She says they remind her of funerals from back in the days when the wake and the viewing were in the home.  I don't care.  Bring me some dead or alive.
