Garden for the nose and the eyes

Some gardens delight both the eyes and the nose

This article, from the Christian Science Monitor, points up the fact that gardens should smell nice, as well as look nice.

As I mentioned earlier this week, lavender is going to become much more prominant in our front garden over the coming year. In the back garden, I have 2 gardenia bushes, one old and one new. I am entranced with the smell whenever they are in bloom. I don't remember this smell from when I was growing up, but somewhere in my life it made an impression on my senses. I always get a sense of well-being when the flood of gardenia scent envelopes me.

If your garden looks good, but smells of nothing more than mown grass, maybe you should look into a few scent-ual items to add a new dimension.
