Re: jasmine

auralie, donna put a couple of pictures of the jasmine up. i have it growing this heavily on another tree also. i picked up a variegated one a year or so ago, but it [on a third tree] is taking its own sweet smelling time about growing.

Jim, that brings back memories! The house where I grew up in the panhandle
had a massive Confederate Jasmine growing on a trellis beside the back door.
It was such a handsome mass of green and white! On Mother's Day Sunday they
used to pick large baskets of it and Dorothy Perkins roses. At the church
door you were given a pink or white blossom depending on whether your mother
was alive or dead. Since my mother had died when I was an infant, I always
received the white, and still think of it on Mother's Day. I can remember
the preacher's wife standing on a ladder to pick the white blooms. It always
oozed a white sap, but I don't remember that ir caused a problem by staining
or being sticky. I have often wished I had a greenhouse so that I could try
to grow that vine (and for other reasons, too). Enjoy it!
