Fairy with Gardenia



I selfishly took a gardenia off a neighborhood shrub while on my morning walk today. My grandma always wore "Jungle Gardenia" perfume and I was in the mood to remember my grandma today. Gardenias are so beautiful, elegant, strong and fragile all at once - so like my Grandma. And of course, she always smelled wonderful ~ like a Gardenia! I miss her very much!

Kim, what a sweet, honored post of your Grandmother. I love the Fairy and I love Gardenia's too. They remind me of my Mother. She always had them floating in a bowl of water on our table at home. She like flowery perfumes too.. You are a sweetheart!

Mmmm gardenias...

I was missing my grandma yesterday, too. She's had Alzheimer's for many years now. She loves butterflies, and I cannot see one without thinking of her.

I love you, Kim!

We all have favorite memories of loved ones!!! It's so nice to remember special moments and qualities....thanks for all the comments. It helped me feel gratitude the whole day for the people that i love in my life then and now...and it's wonderful to know that bonds of love just keep stretching through the eternities.
