Pink Jasmine

The Pink Jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum) vines bloom in the springtime in my front courtyard here in Tucson, Arizona.

These flowers are extremely fragrant, and my whole yard is filled with the exotic, heady scent of jasmine. Pink Jasmine flowers are actually white, but the flower buds and the backs of the petal-like lobes are a lovely pink.

Pink Jasmine flowers are open both day and night, but I decided to try photographing them at night just for fun. Like other white flowers, those of Pink Jasmine look beautiful when illuminated at night, and these vines are a wonderful, fragrant addition to any evening garden.
