Fragrance in the Garden @ the Bacon Free Library

July 11, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Perhaps you have smelled the lovely fragrance of a peony and were immediately transported back to a time long ago in your grandmother’s garden. Have you ever wondered why that is? Joanne Pearson is back to enlighten us about the power of aroma and its importance in the garden.

In this program, we’ll look at the amazing things that scent does for a plant (botanically, that is, the scent is not there for our pleasure!). We will discuss specific plants, shrubs, and trees with fragrant flowers and foliage that can be grown in New England and where to place them in the landscape to maximize our enjoyment of their fragrance throughout the garden.

Joanne Pearson has been a professional photographer for over 25 years. Prior to her career as a photographer, she was a registered landscape architect in the state of  Massachusetts where she practiced for 12 years.  Her photographs of gardens, landscapes, and people have been featured in numerous magazines, books, and calendars including Yankee magazine, Farm and Ranch Living, and BrownTrout Publishers, Inc. She is also the solo photographer for Mahoney Publishing’s Flowers and Gardens of New England.

This program will be held over Zoom. Please register on the BFL website to receive the meeting link.
