How did the garden with its flowers and trees offer solace and comfort to Helen ?

Expert Answer:

Helen used to feel along the square stiff boxwood hedges, guided by the sense of smell that would find the first violets and lilies. After throwing a fit of temper, she hid her hot face in the cool leaves and grass. She wandered happily from spot to spot, until she came upon the beautiful vine which covered the tumble-down summer-house at the farther end of the garden. The roses, the heart-satisfying and the loveliest of all the roses found in the greenhouses of the North, used to hang in long festoons from the porch of the house, filling the whole air with their fragrance, untainted by any earthy smell. In the early morning, washed in the dew, the roses felt so soft, so pure, that Helen could not help but wonder if they resembled the asphodels of God's garden.
