Heavenly Scented Gardenia


Update: I was told these were gardenias, but I kept thinking they look more like the magnolias I grew up with in Florida. I still think they’re white magnolias. If anyone knows for sure, let me know in the comments. Thanks.

I have four good size Gardenia trees on one side of my house and they are beginning to bloom. So beautiful and the scent is like heaven. One of my favorite flowers.
