Scents

orlily

It’s becoming clear to me that I make gardens that appeal to me visually as well as olfactorily (is that a word?). Smell is important. Lilacs, honeysuckle, roses, sweet peas, garden phlox and now the oriental lilies. Evening scents are the best. I like to be puttering in the garden and follow a nose trail to the flower. Sometimes I bring flowers in the house just to smell them. This is a transient pleasure.

  1. Absolutely! Me, too! Soapwort (considered an invasive pest by some is encouraged and mown around here!) old fashioned phloxes, Sweet William, old single wild roses, purple lilac… scented wonders, all!
