A Garden For All Five Seasons

A colorful landscape is a thing of beauty to enjoy with your eyes.  But it should also appeal to your other senses.

This sweet autumn clematis bursts into bloom each fall creating a beautiful and fragrant welcome to visitors.  And the buzzing of the bees adds to the enjoyment.

The fragrant flowers of this fall blooming bugbane add a bit of sweet perfume to this shade garden. 

While the rustle of the tree leaves, ornamental grasses, and wind chimes add another dimension of enjoyment.

The soft fuzzy leaves of these lambs’ ears beg to be petted and this pot of scented geraniums release a fragrance with each petting. 

Garlic chives brighten the late summer and fall garden and can be used to add a light garlic flavor to your favorite dishes.  The fragrant leaves, flowers and even seeds are edible.  You may need to contain and deadhead to keep this aggressive plant in bounds.
