Each year when the snow melts, purple pansies sprout up all over the yard like in the image above. They are so small and delicate and seem to be here one of the first flowers to indicate that spring is near.

Every year in May our lilac (Syringa) tree is in full bloom. The aroma of these flowers really fills the garden. The aroma is almost too strong to use these as a bouquet in the home. The scent dominates the whole room.

In Germany, the garden heliotrope is called “Vanilleblumen”, meaning vanilla flowers when translated. The name has a good reason as these flowers really have a strong flavour of vanilla and such a sweet aroma.

Spring is an exciting time of the year when the temperatures start to get warmer and the trees and flowers start to bloom. It is the time of awakening and color and nothing says spring more than tulips. Tulips add so much color to the yard which is a blessing after such a long, dark and cold winter. Just looking at them grow is amazing. When the temperature is warm enough it just seems to take only a day for the bud to be in full bloom and already a couple of days later, the flower starts to lose its petals. We are fortunate to have tulip fields near where we live. Each year you can go there and choose and cut your own fresh flowers for a small fee.

Even if you never make it to the Provence in France to see the most gorgeous lavender fields known in the world, you can bring a bit of that beauty to your own garden by planting lavender bushes of your own. Lavender has a sweet aroma to it and is not only lovely to look at. It can also be used to fill little sachets to place in your drawers and closets to keep the moths away and to add a parfume like scent to them as well.
