The Sensory Garden
The Sensory Garden depicts the five senses, sight, smell, sound, taste, touch, through plants. Sight uses all the colors of the rainbow for visual delight. Touch the leaves of other plants and sniff for a variety of wonderful aromas, including popcorn! Wind swishing through tall grasses, a birdhouse and feeder to attract songbirds, and a xylophone among the plants bring sound to life. The taste area has strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, apples, even beans to tempt your taste buds. Plants that are prickly, hairy, smooth or bumpy offer a variety of sensations in the touch area.
