Today's photos are from Joe out in Newcastle, Washington (Zone 8b), who says, "I love this time of the year as the rhodies and azaleas are so colorful in the front yard. I have been trying to create a more woodland feeling in my backyard since it is mostly shaded. I like to experiment with different plants, and once a plant likes an area, I leave it there. I am also trying to lighten up shady areas with yellow and white flowers and light colored foliage. I like mixing in ferns with large leafed plants and using contrasting colors of leaves." You have such a great collection of plants, Joe! Please do send in wider shots soon–I'd love to see more!
