Sweet Fragrance in the Garden

My Shirley Temple Peonies just opened their snow white blooms and my first instinct was to lean down and take a breath of their intoxicating scent. The sweet fragrance of blooms adds a lovely sensory element to your garden bursting in color. Scatter fragrant perennials and spring bulbs throughout your garden to enjoy the wonderful, sweet scent all season – Both outside in your garden and brought inside for beautiful, sweet-smelling bouquets.
