Brooke Hamilton from Utah, showcases here property by use of an artful filter--the end result adds a interesting vintage moodiness to her garden.

"I live in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Zone 5b. I love to garden and am very luck to have found a yard that had mature trees. Shade is crucial in our hot summers. It is very hot and dry. It makes gardening a real challenge, which is that much more rewarding! Enjoy!"
