Example of a summary

 

Original passage:

There is a fourth dimension to any garden that may often be overlooked. This is the dimension of fragrance, and although its appreciation is not new, it seems to have been cast aside to make room for texture, form and color. Fragrance is subjective, and opinions of it diverse, but it is unquestionable that the garden planted with scented flowers offers the added bonus of fragrance in addition to form and color. It has been said that smell is the sense that is most memorable and that none of the other senses is more subtle in its suggestions or more reminiscent of a certain time.

The purpose of a flower's fragrance is thought to be that of an attractant to nectar-feeding insects. Not all perfumes are found in the flowers, however. Scents may also be found in roots, bark, gum or oils, leaves, stalks and sometimes in the seeds.

Generally, fragrant flowers are lightly colored or white.  Although brilliantly colored flowers are not usually fragrant, there are exceptions. Flowers that are thick in texture, such as citrus, magnolia and gardenia, are often the most distinctive and intense in scent.

 

Summary passage:

Adding sweet-smelling flowers to a garden is something many gardeners may skip.  One can become too caught up in visual flower aspects such as color or composition.  Yet adding beautiful smelling flowers just as important for those gardeners who are looking to have an all-around "memorable" flower display.  Most aromatic flowers are mainly white; yet, some more colorful plants may hide their lovely smell in less obvious places, like in their roots, stems, and leaves.

summary

When adding flowers to a garden gardeners would mostly add flowers which has good texture, form and color.They do not add flowers which have good fragrances which are memorable. Flowers with fragrances attract nectar feeding insects and the brightly colored flowers hide they scent in their barks, leaves, stem,gum, oils and sometimes in their seeds.

My Summary

Gardeners may tend to overlook fragrance when having their garden although fragrance is the most memorable sense most gardeners focus mainly on texture form and color. The fragrant of a flower attracts nectar-feeding insects. While most frag-ranted flower are lightly colored other flowers tend d to hide their their scents in bark,stalk and roots
