In Which I Make a Rather Embarrassing Discovery
On my list of 101 Things I wrote that I want to plant a gardenia in our back yard. I kind of knew where I wanted it to be and discussed it with Rob. Yesterday Rob showed me a bush close to where I want my gardenia to be planted, when we plant one. There was a beautiful white flower there. I said, "That's a gardenia." Rob disagreed, said the leaves are wrong for a gardnia and I said, "No." I climbed down from the deck and walked around to the bush, bent over to smell the flower and, yes, it is a gardenia.
I guess planting one there would be redundant. On the other hand, at least we know one will grow and bloom there so why not another?
