With some sunshine in Seattle finally arriving I find us out on the one year old patio enjoying a lounge, a snack, or a trip to and from the garden. It had me thinking last night how different the experience with our space is and how more connected I feel to the garden with our new patio. Here is a photo of the old one http://beansandbunnies.blogspot.com/2010/03/patio-boards-removed.html?m=0.
Garden design and plant choice plays a significant role in our enjoyment of the space much like paint colors and furniture impact an indoor room.
Picture the last garden you were in where you felt relaxed and at ease. What plants were there? Can you still remember the smells? I love the scent of a new rain in the garden.
