The Jasmine gate of spring...

While I was out of commision with my cold/flu, the Jasmine came to life on the fence! These are two shots of only the gate, which I find endearing! This gate is so hard to hold open all year, due to the thick growth of the plant material all over it, but in spring, it all becomes worth the extra efforts. I love flowering gates!!!



Pure simplicity
Marks the arrival of spring-
A pale yellow sky.

Simple complexities
mark the arrival of spring-
With bright blue skies!

I have a Confederate Jasmine bush in my yard ---but it's definitely not ready to bloom yet... I'll send you a picture when it blooms. It looks just like yours!!!!

We've had a wonderful day today at the beach... Beautiful weather after the rain yesterday (clear, sunny, breezy, warm---PERFECT)...

Hugs,
Betsy

thanks for your comment Julie. Love Jasmine and when I go for my walks a few of the homes have them along their gates and what a great fragrance while walking by. I really like the photo that you have at the banner.
Have a great day.

That's soooo pretty. Only a true gardener would allow the Jasmine to stay growing on the gate and put up with the incovenience it causes when opening and closing.

I love the Confederate Jasmine. Is that what yours is? Our neighbor on the corner has it growing on about 40 feet of fence and you can smell it throughout the whole neighborhood.

I love your little haiku.
