Ed and I spent most of the Memorial Day weekend planting a new flower garden. I've never felt that I have much talent in this area - most of my houseplants wind up as pathetic brown things, but we did our best, and I must say that I'm pretty pleased with the results. The scent wafting up from the garden when I stepped out on to the deck this morning made all of the hard work worthwhile. I wish I could get this amazing perfume to you - somebody please invent smell-o-vision!
I love all of the colors, from bright, lemony yellows to orange, pink and salmon, pale blue and the deep royal blue of Lobelia - a veritable rainbow! Many thanks to Prisco's for all of the wonderful flowers. Someday, I hope to make this small space a garden we can walk through, and install a gazebo for summer gazing, but for now, I'm content just to have this little splash of color and scent in my own little backyard.
