Thanks Lin, Moti, Jacquie, Carole, Holly, Yorkshire, Terra and Ann :o))))))

The hayfever is definitely worth it as the smell is heavenly - especially in the evening ;o))))

Hi Pip, this isn't a Star Jasmine (Trachelopspermum jasminoides) but a true Jasmine (Jasminium officinale).

Lovely photo too.

Thanks Fractal - I made a mistake, we have two jasmines and I always get mixed up ;o)))

I was thinking it was Pink Poly Jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum), but I guess that that's a little earlier blooming.

It is J. polyanthum, Tugbrethil - this time I have the plant tag on my side ;o))) LOL It's finished blooming now anyway.

Good to know I'm not completely wrong! : )
I have to admit that I haven't personally seen a Jasminum officinale--I'm not certain that they grow in my climate. Probably too blazing hot in the summer, here! I know that the Pink Poly isn't happy with our summers: it just barely gets by.
