One of the most beautiful things about Rome this time of year is the jasmine. The whole city is in bloom and perfumed with the sweet, musky, honey fragrance of this delicate little white flower. It grows everywhere- along the sidewalks, up the walls, along the fences and the sides of the buildings. In some spots, you’ll be flanked on three sides by jasmine, and it is just absolutely heavenly. My mom is sure to keep all the windows open so the perfume can fill the house as the breeze blows.
