Bonsai Bliss...Jasmine in the House...

This is one of my favorite inside trees...A bit too big to be an official bonsai, but in my mind, any tree that is dwarfed and kept in a pot indoors is a bonsai. I do not know what variety of jasmine this is, but it is very hardy and very prolific in it's gorgeous blooms!

Just one little cluster of these flowers can scent a whole room....
And a few clusters scent my whole house. It may only be 19 degrees outside,(actually a bit of a heat wave compared to recent temps) but in here, it SPRING!!!

Wow - it's just beautiful. And so nice to have blooms in the house! I find bonsai trees kind of amazing.

Oh Mare! It's beautiful! It reminds me of my citrus trees that I keep indoors through the long Iowa winter, and then they bask in the Iowa sunshine all summer long. Mine are *just* starting to get blooms on them - well, the lime and the orange. Maybe I should blog about it!

Thanks for your heartfelt comments on my blog today. You really made me feel welcomed even though I am an immigrant here, and that is very special to me. Hugs to you!

That is the most amazing, miraculous thing, those blossoms in winter! Wow.

Hi Everybody! Thanks for the comments on my tree. I can STILL smell the jasmine blooms... And Claire, i have a miniature mock orange in training for Bonsai and it has buds on it too! I bought it last Spring and it had one little blossom on it and i could smell it an isle away! As for my comment on your blog, i meant every word! Hugs back at you!
