The Gardens are “Scent”sational

Categories: The Garden 2014.

It is so wonderful to walk around the garden this week.  The scent of the lilacs, the lily of the valley and the honeysuckle is amazing. It is hard to choose what to show this week as there are lots of colourful blooms in all sorts of places.  Enjoy the peek into my gardens.
