More Tiny Flowers

Jasmine on my windowsill...
One of my Bonsai, the Vietnamese Water Jasmine (Wrightia Religiosa) has bloomed, and it is absolutely lovely! The little blossoms hang from their branches like tiny paper lanterns. And they have a sweet soft jasmine scent too. I thought you might enjoy seeing them at their best...

A closer look

Beautiful delicate flowers...i wish i could share their scent with you....

Have a wonderful weekend!

I bet the scent is yummy. :) I saw a sign for a bonsai show this weekend and thought of you! :)

Oh they're just gorgeous, Mare. I'll bet they smell even prettier!
Have you ever tried to dry Jasmine blooms?

Yikes! That little Bonsai is gorgeous! Thanks for the visit over at my blog - always especially nice to meet other folks in the Arts, and Adirondack enthusiasts as well. I'm going to head off to add you to my links list so I can visit often!!

Oh Ananda, that is so sweet! You really should try to check a bonsai show out! They are so interesting!
Paula, i have never tried to dry the flowers from my trees. Last Summer my common jasmine tree bloomed so much that the scent was almost overpowering! I bet they would dry up nice!
Thanks for stopping by City Mouse!I hope you do come by and visit again! I'll be dropping in on you too!
