Under the Jasmine Tree
EJ loves the smell of fresh Jasmine flowers.
The late Cookie used to love to sleep here during every hot afternoons.
On those really hot afternoons, EJ, siblings and mom were extremely envious just watching Cookie sleep. It felt good and comforting just staring at him in deep slumber there unmoving. In fact, they felt the coolness Cookie was getting and secretly wished either they could make themselves small to crawl in together with Cookie or make that little hut and Jasmine plant big.
With those sweet scent and shade, who wouldn't want to be under the Jasmine Tree?
Below is the Jasmine flower (Jasminum Sambac) plant EJ planted grown from a cutting of the Jasmine plant Cookie slept under at EJ's Mom's porch. That porch has been renovated and that Jasmine plant removed.
Currently EJ is trying to grow the Jasmine plant again after an invasion of snails destroyed it.
