Birdbath Decorated with Candles and Gardenias

Beeswax Candles in Birdbath with GardeniasI was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest to create this decor vignette in my garden. I think it is so romantic to combine the beeswax candles with the fragrant Gardenias.

Romantic Gardenia and Beeswax CandlesIn this corner of the garden the summer blooms are lush, I just cut back the flowers off the snapdragons – else this would have been surrounded by gorgeous red blooms – they should rebloom soon.

Gardenias and Beeswax CandlesThis week we can enjoy the most daylight hours – isn’t it marvelous – I love the length of the summer days – but, as the sun sets, it seems the fragrant flowers give us a sweet note of goodnight by perfuming the air giving us a promise of the lovely day to come.
