Our garden isn’t quite asleep this winter, with early blooming Narcissus, remnants of roses and sages here and there.
All the while, I have been dreaming and planning for the upcoming seasons.
One of Tovah’s observances that I took particular note to was that when seeking plants to bring indoors – search for lighter shades in flower – white, yellow and pinks – these are the more fragrant of the flowers from plants and bushes.
Fragrant, flowering plants on Tovah’s list included: sweet olive, citrus, freesias, tuberoses, angel’s trumpet, African gardenia, jasmines, geraniums, peace lily, passion flowers and several herbs.
I can just imagine these beauties being muses inspiring me all the more while searching for ideas and inspiration of flower combinations and color for my garden from my favorite garden books, magazines and catalogs.
Are you garden dreaming too. Do you bring indoors fragrant plants or forced bulbs to inspire you and console your heart white the winter months and days do their work outdoors?
