Today's photos are from Deborah Trickett. She says, "I live in Milton, Massachusetts, just south of Boston. I have a very small suburban garden on two levels. Over the 17 years we have lived here I have managed to create two separate rooms. The slope dividing them was once covered in juniper but we tore that out and it is now terraced and planted with a mixture of colorful shrubs and perennials. Downstairs is the dining area since it is right off the kitchen. Upstairs is a firepit area where we hang out at night with a glass of wine or s'mores! The upper garden's palette of green and white makes great use of texture and also looks very pretty at night. I have used shrubs and plants and even bamboo in long planters to create green walls for privacy. From my favorite chair I cannot see the neighbors and they cannot see me!" So clever, Deborah, and your plant combos are gorgeous! More photos, please. **Deborah has a website! Check it out: The Captured Garden
