I had been trying to bring back to life my jasmine star light flower for months and my mom had listened to me complain of the trouble of not being able to.. My mom walked out for this Mother’s Day when I lived in MN and said “ you can never have too many beautiful flowers in your garden Leena, as long as you remember to stop and enjoy the smell that each one brings for the time of their season”..
