Summertime in our gardens should be the ultimate outdoor sensory retreat.
The wonderful long evenings on the deck or patio should be the antidote to the stress we all feel during our busy days.
The big question is: Can our decks, patios and gardens meet the challenge?
Summer color and how we blend analogous tones together is very important, but fragrance is, perhaps, the most critical element when it comes to creating that sensory refill. Ironically, most of the color with which we surround ourselves has little perfume.
