In every season, you’ll find many pretty things to see, hear, and even touch in the garden. But after a long, hard winter, the forgotten sense that comes back to life in spring is the sense of smell.
My nose reminded me as I passed a planter outside a client’s office. Suddenly, I was whisked back to our grandmother’s garden in Wales with the fragrance of stocks (Matthiola)! Wish you could get your nose right into the picture above and share that sensory timewarp. While they’re also called night-scented stocks, their old-fashioned clovey perfume was still transporting at lunchtime.
