Since January 2010, Fine Gardening has offered Garden Photo of the day, a weekday email that features staff and reader photos of gorgeous gardens, intriguing design solutions, hardscape, wildlife, and more. Most of these have not appeared in the magazine.

Garden Photo of the Day is produced by Fine Gardening associate editor Michelle Gervais, who is always on the lookout for new photos to feature. If you'd like to submit some of yours for consideration, send them by email, along with a brief description.

Here's a sampling of popular posts, as rated by our readers' recommendations and comments, to give you an idea of what you can expect when you sign up for Fine Gardening's Garden Photo of the Day. Each weekday morning, you'll get to visit cool gardens from all over without ever leaving home. You'll glean design ideas for your own garden. It's your passport to instant garden bliss and enlightenment.
