A garden bench under sheltering boughs is an invitation to wile away a lazy afternoon. Surround that bench with flowers and fragrance and the invitation becomes irresistible. This nook garden offers secluded respite in a beautiful setting. It's equally at home in a front yard or back. The redbud tree provides needed shade for the astilbes and other shade-loving perennials, while the lavender and penstemon are placed in full sun. Daffodils, hyacinths, and snowdrops are optional but highly recommended.
