A Fence Full of Jasmine and Joy

Photo by Moryt Milo

The weather turned quite hot, into the upper 90s, and the star jasmine broke out in bloom all at once along the side of the house.

The vine with its ivory-scented flowers has completely overtaken the redwood fence flowing down to the ground. The waxy leaves and star flowers have chaotically entwined themselves within the upper trellis.




Welcome to Tea with Mother Nature, a publication to start conversations about connecting with nature, gardening, sustainability, creativity and what it means to be a human. What has she got to teach us? What would we like to tell her about our interactions with her natural world?
