Bob Stamper in Zionsville, Pennsylvania, was inspired by all of the recent photos of Innisfree to send in this photo. He says, "I took this photo in Kanazawa, Japan, a few years ago. It was part of a garden on the grounds of a temple in the center of the city. Besides being esthetically beautiful, the angles apparently keep evil spirits from following you because they can only travel in straight lines." Gorgeous, Bob! We'd love to see more photos from that trip.....

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.

R E A D E R   P H O T O S: We love featuring your photos, too. If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images if possible. We'll only respond if we plan to use your photo.

What popped immediately into my mind, after reading the text was, "How strange that in this beautiful peaceful environment the designer has allowed fear(superstition/fear)to guide some of the design." How could devils possibly exist in this paradise?
