Star Jasmine

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. I thought flowers would be a good way to say goodbye to the week. I planted two star jasmine (trachelospermum jasminoides) at either side of the back door. They have climbed their trellises and provide a wonderful waft of perfume whenever you go in or out. Never mind that I almost killed them this summer due to an over zealous pruning episode I would rather not discuss. Actually, I deny even being in the country when it happened. And to all you botanists out there, yes, I know it is not a true jasmine. No letters, please.
