Our speaker was Windermere resident Becky Nix. She spoke on fragrance gardens which help to calm the mind and flavor our foods.  She had slide photos and information on many different plants that are fragrant and grow well in our area. Becky had many clipping as well as dried herbs from her own garden which she shared with everyone attending. One of Becky’s favorite fragrant plant is the pine tree.
