{Our Gardenias in the June Rain}

Once more I have to share with you one of my favorite flowers; Our Gardenias. This time in the June Rain. When husband Pieter made these photos around 5:00 PM in the afternoon, they all had TEARS on them...
In fact with those Rain Drops or TEARS, they even look prettier to me.
What do you think?
You also can see a tiny insect hiding inside its heart.
Several of our large variety of  'Aimee Yoshida'.
Perfect blossoms...
Again, an insect is visible inside...
They all tried their very best, regardless the rain!
Don't you love GARDENIAS?

  5. Dear Mariette,
    The Gardenias are truly beautiful and they must be heavenly scented, too! You are so lucky to have the climate to grow so many tropical flowers. It must be so exciting when they bloom!

      In a way we are lucky indeed for being able to grow tropical plants. Keeping them alive is another issue. Gardenias have been most rewarding over all those years and guess they are in a perfect spot.

  8. Sorry to hear you have so much rain, but for flowers a bit rain will do very well.

    1. Dearest Marianne,
      You are right, a little rain will do very well but not for months on end and not in a couple of hours a good 15 cm! It does knock leaves off the trees... looks like autumn already. Our summer escaped us totally and it makes for such somber and dark days.

    Oh, very elegant Gardenia with Rain Drops or TEARS♡♡♡ The beautiful white flowers must have a wonderful fragrance. I might have commented in your former post about Gardenia; I love a bit old song titled with this flower, which was sung by the actor♪♪♪

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from very hot Japan, xoxo Miyako*

      The Gardenia is a heavenly flower and especially this large blooming variety of Aimee Yoshida.
      Hope you can stand the heat and hat it is not too humid.
      Here we only have rain and dark damp weather.

  11. These Gardenias are so lovely. I love them so, their aroma is heavenly. The photos are great and the raindrops add so much interest. That first picture is perfect and would win any photo contest.
    My Gardenia barely bloomed this year. Maybe next year.
    Love to you, Ginger

    1. Dearest Ginger,
      Oh, we are so fortunate for having them bloom this year; despite the heavy rains. But you are right with lots of blooms just not showing up because there is not enough light during these dark and rainy days. Let's hope next year our summer will be more 'normal'... whatever that means.
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

  12. Your gardenias are really beautiful. I like you say "tears" for rain drops. I also like when you say "pregnant" for cloudy sky :-) Very creative way to describe nature!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Thanks for your compliments.
      As for me, those must have been 'tears'... it almost brings me to tears with all the rain. Yesterday I drove back and forth to Atlanta in heavy rain for our region (1-½ hour) but Atlanta was lovely sunny and even a bit cooler. The same treat on the way back home, after a good hour I was using my wipers on full speed on and off. It seems to never stop here and about 6" in a couple of hours is way too much water. We got again a flash flood warning till Saturday morning.
      Hugs,

  15. Hallo Mariëtte, Bedankt voor je lieve reactie.
    Wat een prachtige foto's van de Gardenia's, wat zal het heerlijk ruiken.
    Ik heb de orginele foto's nog wel, maar ik post vanuit Life Writer en die bewaard niet alle posten, dus daarom kon ik er geen foto's meer bij plaatsen en anders moest ik foto voor foto uploaden en dat is voor bijna 5 jaar bloggen niet te doen.
    Ik zit privé op FB, maar heb ook veel Blogsters in mijn vriendenlijst staan, als je het leuk vindt ben je welkom. Als je googled naar Mea Buis vindt je me wel.
    Fijn weekend en een lieve groet, Mea

      Dank je wel voor je compliment en ja, die geur zou ik wíllen doorgeven. Zó hemels...
      Jammer dat je die foto's kwijt raakte. Toch had je er wat aan gehad, mits je ze had ge-exporteerd en op je PC opgeslagen. Nu is het té veel werk om ze opnieuw te uploaden.
      Mogelijk voor een volgende keer toch doen.
      Liefs en fijn weekend.

      Thank you for your kind comment with compliments. Yes, it is only due to hard work and still, sometimes nature is so cruel that all the hard work has been in vain.
      You are quite welcome for my writing. Love to comment on your blog posts and when you had the accident, I did call out for some support. You deserved that!
      So glad that now your golfing period will start being more frequent due to the upcoming spring.

  24. Gardenias are one of my favorite flowers, too, Mariette. If those are tears, I believe they are tears of joy. Who wouldn't be moved that way if she were as beautiful as a gardenia (and smelled as sweet)! <3

  25. Oh, your Gardenias are so pretty. Yes, I think they look much nicer with a raindrop or two on them. I was thinking the same thing when I took the picture of the white rose on my post. It had a few raindrops on it, and I thought it was more special. You know, I used to have a Gardenia bush at my old home, and I miss it very much. This brought back sweet memories.

    Love,

      Gardenias are very pretty; one of the most romantic flowers on earth - together with the roses of course! Your white rose also looked very special. You certainly could grow another one in your Californian garden.
