The Twilight Garden

Twilight garden : a guide to enjoying your garden in the evening hours by Lia Leendertz — Sorry, Twihards, this book isn't about Bella and Edward, though perhaps they might enjoy hanging out in a garden like this book describes: one that can be enjoyed at night as well as in the daytime. Covered here are techniques for using color, light, scent, and water to make your garden a sensory experience that is pleasing no matter what time of day. Many plants flower at night, and Leendertz focuses on those, as well as on those that stay in bloom overnight. Most of the flowers recommended are white or are especially pleasing under moonlight.
