Scene from the Orto Botanico in the Brera District of Milan via Instagram

In this scene we get an important lesson on how sight lines can make a garden seem much larger than it is. The leading lines of the pathway, the encroaching growth of the plants and the architecture at the end make it seem like the garden goes on for an even greater distance. 
This garden is hemmed in By buildings on each side and isn’t particularly large, but new vistas were always opening up as you walked about.

“If only you could smell these lovely flowers when I took this picture a few years ago. The smell is almost overpowering and one bloom, floated in a dish of water, can perfume the entire house for days. They are beautiful, prolific flowers with an amazing scent and a great addition to your garden.”

What is your favorite sign of Spring?

Ornamental Pear (Pyrus kawakamii)

These common street trees always put on a show this time of year. Their falling petals can resemble snow flurries as the bloom peaks, which can be quite confusing when the temperatures are in the high seventies. Despite a few flakes of snow that dropped into the San Fernando Valley this winter, these blossoms are far more common.

What is your favorite sign of Spring?

These snowflakes (leucojum) are a welcome reminder of Spring. I need to plant more of these, hit they also naturalize well in the garden. 
We can’t grow Snowdrops (galanthus) here in Southern California so these similar looking flowers are the next best thing.
