Jasmine, the Calming Smell of Spring

Jasmine, the Calming Smell of Spring

Not much has been happening in the Glover Gardens blog, because so much is happening at Glover Gardens. Spring keeps us busy! Not one to shuck a heavy load, Spring is busy, herself. Look at what she’s done with the jasmine. Our whole yard smells heavenly.

I did a little research on the smell of jasmine and it turns out that Glover Gardens is an aromatherapy district! The Telegraph, a venerable UK publication, said in a 2010 article,

The sweet smell of jasmine is as good as valium at calming the nerves with none of the side effects, according to new research.

Thank you, Spring!
