Look at him now!

Back in January you may remember (say/pretend you do) that I couldn't bear to put the Christmas tree out into the cold with the other abandoned trees. Eventually I moved him out onto the balcony and look at him now! Despite what I thought, with him coming from warmer climes, he's loving the Neapolitan sunshine. See the new branches at the top of the tree - this is what I've tried to capture in the photos - just in case it's not clear :)

The plant you can see near Christmas tree is Jasmine which is in full bud and is wrapping her branches around the Christmas tree. Because we only have a balcony and no garden, space is limited so they have been forced together. They are now, literally inseparable. Aw.

Oh look at him grow! How lovely!

My jasmine was in full bloom about a month and a half ago, and now is mysteriously losing leaves like nobody's business. It did this last year too and then bounced back, but it's very traumatic for me :(

I love the idea of jasmine and an evergreen together!

the night jasmine is blooming around here and smells so good. It finally feels like spring.

p.s. I tagged you.

I can't wait for the Jasmin to blossom. It's packed with buds just now.

I've never been tagged :) Do I just answer the questions like you did and Sognatrice too? It's all new to me. Anyway, I'll crack on with it asap - cioè this week I reckon.
