I know I've featured this little area of Chanticleer Garden before, but I just visited it again (it's in the ruins garden) last week, and yet again, I could barely tear myself away. It's as about a perfect a spot as you could possibly find in a garden. Here are some of my favorite shots. More from the ruins garden tomorrow...

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.

READER PHOTOS: 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.

Chanticleer is an astoundingly beautiful garden. The variation of the plants and flowers, the fantastic flow of the grounds and the artistry of the designers and craftsman who have built the hardscape are all wonderful. Its also the most enjoyable collection of container plants I have ever seen. If you ever have a chance, go there. Posted: 8:53 am on August 11th

it's wonderful hardscapes, it is even a delight to visit
when much of its plant material is asleep. Posted: 8:08 am on August 11th
