Someone brought me flowers
Today I used the iPhone camera to get a shot of a bouquet of bonbon jasmine a kind library patron named Bob brought me today from his garden. I've seen a number of jasmine varieties, but this one's new to me. They're so fragrant I can smell them across the room, their leaves are a lovely, glossy green and Bob says I can buy the plants at a nursery here in town.
Now I'm picturing a couple of Talavera pots planted with bonbon jasmine by my front door, their fragrance wafting on the breeze.
Any of my friends who are allergic to flowers will have to come in the back door.
The iPhone doesn't produce what I'd call "tack sharp" photos with indoor lighting, but they're large so they can be reduced, improving the resolution.
