So, what am I doing with a Gardenia bush, anyway???
I was at Costco one day when they were selling Gardenia bushes. It made me think of Rosa, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise as everything makes me think of Rosa... So, I picked it up.
It's been out on my patio for the past few weeks but the recent heat wave (that's been lasting a few weeks now) has taken its toll on the poor thing. It was getting wilty, tired... pretty ill. So, I moved it inside and it started to be revived. (It's called air conditioning...)
Now, it is its perky self again. Rosa would be proud.
... Mind you, Bandoo has decided it's also quite delicious, but...
