Today’s GPOD comes from John Markowski.
“My garden in Zone 6B New Jersey is dominated by native perennials and ornamental grasses. This was originally borne out of necessity with poorly draining clay soil and endless visits from the deer and rabbits. I'm thrilled that I was forced in that direction.
The garden peaks in the fall when the Panicum, Sorghastrum, and Miscanthus grasses display their blooms and eye-popping fall color. Combine them with Amsonia and the seedheads of Monarda, Rudbeckia and Echinacea along with the powerful autumn sunlight, and I can't take enough photos starting in early morning and extending to the last bit of sunlight in the late afternoon.”
Have a garden you'd like to share? Email 5-10 high-resolution photos (there is no need to reduce photo sizing before sending—simply point, shoot and send the photos our way) and a brief story about your garden to GPOD@taunton.com. Please include where you're located!
Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
