Garden for the Senses

Last fall we went to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, they had a "Garden for the Senses", it was full of herbs, fragrant plants, plants with foliage that begged to touched, I absolutely fell in love with it and the name as well. My husband built me a small raised bed, I am going to fill it with herbs, scented geraniums, it will be my own "garden for the senses". I will put a few seeds in but mostly will buy plants. Plus I have a few plants I will transplant from my own yard.

I want to make some garden stones that say Garden for the Senses, plus I have some copper plant markers, it is a project I am looking forward to. We bought a sundial to put in it as well.
I have a three day weekend, yeah! With all the rain we have had I plan on spending the day tomorrow digging and transplanting, cleaning up flower beds.

Raised gardens are nice. You can sit on the border and be at ground level with the plants without being all scrinched up.

That sounds wonderful Jenny! I can't wait to see the pictures of your new bed. Great pictures of the zoo, too. I need to revisit - maybe this summer with the grandson.
