This shot was taken a few years ago in the gardens at Filoli in Woodside, California.  

Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.

Sign up to get new posts delivered to your inbox each morning so you'll always remember to take a look, or subscribe to our RSS feed. We look forward to sharing our garden travels with you.

If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images to mgervais@taunton.com with GPOD in the subject line. We'll only respond if we plan to use your photo.

The morning glories were in full bloom and I have a beautiful picture of my sister in front of them. At that time I worked at Hermes of Paris and was talking to one of my workers when lo and behold she came in the store and was opening a B&B in Martha's Vineyard. It seemed whenever I spoke about somebody they would magically appear!I hope her business was successful and sometime I would like to return! Posted: 4:04 pm on October 18th

MKSBrown writes: Nice photo. I was a Filoli garden yesterday. It was an overcast day with a light rain, perfect conditions for photographs. I hope I got a few nice photos to show everyone when I get back to Indiana. The massive yews that are visible in your photo have been cut back to get them to the proportion of the original design. The heavy cut back with all the thick woody base of the yew showing, while the plant grows back, gives the garden a surreal, interesting look. I will post photos on my web site in a few days. www.myrenesgarden.com Posted: 11:45 am on October 18th
