The letter this week is J
The lovely, romantic Jasmine seems a perfect choice for J.
A cherished Valentine present in 2012
Jasmine - its name derived from the Persian 'Yasameen', meaning Gift of God.
It has the most compelling and enticing fragrance
The National Flower of Hawaii, Indonesia, Pakistan and the Phillippines
Jasmine has great cultural importance in the East
being used in marriage rituals, festivals, religious ceremonies
and in the home
Used often as a hair ornament, - tucked behind the ear or in a braid
its lovely fragrance is pleasant to both the wearer
and the passer-by
