I didn't know there were Thai gardenias! I like the arrangement of petals; like a propeller! Exotic. :)

OmG this is so adorable. I didn't know there was a Thai Gardenia. I just bought another pot of gardenia. I cannot seem to grow it here. I wonder if it's not hot enough. I'm sure it's not humid enough.

Happy weekend. Hinay hinay lang sa Tanduay ice :)

Hi Luna, i've seen it in the last garden show but i forgot to smell its scent, did you? And you have a nice layout of this blog, maybe you can teach me how to edit mine, hehe. I am having difficulty doing my new one, as i can't seem to locate the new knobs, and i felt so stupid! I wasn't able to join the Friday links because i am too engrossed in it but still cannot make what i want, haha!...Andrea too.
