One of the things I love about our home is the beautiful gardenia bush in the front yard. It blooms pretty much all year round. But while I love its fragrance, I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never really stopped to admire it or "smell the gardenias" so to speak. Until today.
Someone asked for some today so I decided to cut some for myself as well. I put them in a couple candle holders. As I inhaled the scent, I forgot how hot it was for a couple seconds.
