Wake up and smell the gardenias

I love waking up to the light of dawn. It is said that God's blessings come with the morning sun.



I woke up to find a single gardenia (Gardenia Jasminoides) flower blooming amidst the frangipani trees, its heady and rich romantic fragrance perfuming the warm morning air. The gardenia flower softly whispers, " I love you in secret."

Visit One Crabapple's blog about Art, Tea and Life and read about the Winged Messenger on Mission. If you like tea, why not take a tea leaf reading as well?

My tea leaf reading to contemplate on for today says:

Answers, without first embarking upon the journey, will have no resonance
Powerful creatures should try to be good.
Not everyone, however, is called to climb mountains and deliver commandments.
Be fruitful and be at peace.

Happy Friday, everyone!

  2. I like your tea reading. It seems very profound. Especially the part about not everyone needing to climb mountains and deliver commandments.

    Plus, I have hibiscus on my front walk, but there is no frangipani here. They are so pretty and I love that word. frangipani.
