Today’s Flowers/Jasmine

Last month I got a small plant from a nursery. I was told that it was a variety of jasmine from Thailand and that the mildly fragrant flower turns yellow. The above picture was taken two days ago. This morning this was the colour. Aging gracefully, don’t you think?

Visit the home of Today’s Flowers to see the most beautiful blooms on our planet.

Edited to add-—- the flower on this post is the Thai Gardenia/ Gardenia gjellerupii. Thanks to Luna Miranda and Autumn Belle for mentioning this in their comments.

  8. Kanak, how wonderful! This flower looks like a type of gardenia to me. Perhaps Gardenia vietnamensis or something. Btw I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. When you have the time, check out the details in my latest post. Cheers!

  13. flowers age differently….. starting with white and ending with yellow. Our hair on the other hand turn grey or white at later age.
