Scented flower arrangements

As I was strolling though my backyard this morning, I was seduced by the sweet perfume from Jasmine vines. All of Southern California Jasmine vines are blooming wildly with dense clusters of fragrant flowers. I know that these are not traditional flowers for arrangements but I wanted to enjoy the  heavenly smell of Jasmines inside the house so I clipped the vines, brought them inside, and arranged them all over the house.  Now my entire house smells divine, filled with the sweet scent from Jasmine.

On the kitchen table. 



 In the bathroom.



I wish you could smell these flowers with me.



In the family room.




Next to the kitchen sink.


Haaa! I am in heaven. I wish you were here.

  1. Lovely flowers. My cats would have a field day if I brought them into our home. lol

  2. You enjoy that lovely jasmine - I am so jealous...we have snow and ice here this morning and it's going to be a long time until anything blooms...

  3. They are so beautiful and I can almost (not quite) smell them...enjoy them.
