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.”

Snowflakes in the Garden via Instagram

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.

A tree returns to the garden soil

In the Orto Botanico In the Brera District of Milan, a tree is felled but left in place to benefit wildlife, fungi and the surrounding soil. It is also a great educational tool for explaining the soil cycle and other garden concepts. Even as it decomposes, it lends a beautiful, architectural element to the garden, too. This is definitely an argument for leaving downed trees and snags in your own garden, when possible. 

In a similar fashion, I use wood chips to line the paths in my garden—an method I started after seeing the same at nearby @descansogardens. It is a great way to make use of what otherwise might go into your garden bins or, perhaps, the composter.
