Default Garden/Landscaping Information request

I'm new to the group and would like to request direct information or perhaps
some sites that will provide me direct information about light landscaping
(versus moving a whole yard around - I'm not referring to illumination with
the term "light" : - ) and flower gardens..

I have several areas in my yard that need "prettying up" or at least, a
modicum of landscaping efforts. My budget is modest, but I do want it to
look as nice as possible within my constraints. I'm in Zone 7 and the
specific area(s) to be planted are in both full sun and partial shade. I'm
planning to plant a vegetable garden which is pretty basic, so that's no
real challenge.

However, I'm seeking to plant some nice flowers and/or other reasonably
priced green shrubs/plants. I prefer perennials so that I'm not replanting
each year and am considering some daisies as one option, but definitely want
a variety. I'm looking for hardy flowers that can withstand drought and if
possible, fragrant flowers.

I realize my requests are too open-ended to get much specific info. If
someone could recommend a superb gardening site that offers comparative
information on different plants and also planting suggestions (i.e., a
landscape plan), then that would be most helpful.

Thank you in advance and I apologize if this has been asked and covered
