Jasmine Here, Jasmine There, Confederate Jasmine Everywhere

Strolling around Charleston in the Spring, bombarded by Confederate Jasmine, made me suddenly burst into my own version of a cult classic by a very wise man, Dr. Seuss.

Crawling up columns

On wrought iron and brick

Winding up stairs

As the air becomes thick

Tangled on poles

Growing low at your feet

What allergies you ask

The smell can’t be beat

Enveloping arbors and fences and walls

Rounding out gardens and growing in pots

One thing’s for sure

The South has a lot

Here is one of my all-time favorites:
