If you've dreamt of strolling in your garden at duskÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ drinking in fragrant blooms of roses, gardenias, hyacinths or jasmineÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
If you've always wanted to create a sanctuary of luscious greenery and splashes of color right on your doorstepÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
If you secretly want your garden to be the envy of all your neighborsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Then please read on...
In your mind's eye, step outside for a moment. Feel the sun-warmed grass between your toes. Smell the moist soil. Relax. Breathe in the scented air. And let your imagination drift to your idyllic gardenÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Perhaps you dream of filling your rooms with bouquets of fresh-cut flowers, like brilliant orange gladioli, purple irises, delicate roses, giant dahlias, and flashy sunflowers.
Or maybe you'd like to recreate the pond you had growing up, full of orange and white speckled koi, with water lilies floating gently on the surface.
If bold color delights you, imagine beds filled with scorching red tulips, bordered by purple and yellow pansies. Begonia and impatiens peeking out from beneath a hedge of cherry-red hibiscus bloomsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Cotton-candy cosmosÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Scarlet poppies nodding gently in the breezeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Or perhaps you'd like to stroll in a tree garden filled with shady fern-filled nooks, and wild daffodils sprouting up each yearÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ A backdrop of rhododendrons, camellias and sweet-smelling gardeniasÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Pink and white dogwoodsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
What about a fountain or a gazebo as a focal point, with trailing purple wisteria, honeysuckle or jasmine?
Or maybe you're more interested in eating the fruits of your labor, including vine-ripened tomatoesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ zucchiniÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ string-beansÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ basilÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ rosemary and mintÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
