John Markowski, from New Jersey (Zone 6B), shares the summer to fall transition with us, focusing on the perennials and ornamental grasses that dominate his garden.

Additionally, here is a link to his new book: "Perennials Through the Seasons".

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 are located!

Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
