Today's photos are from Thea Chacamaty, who is a designer with Janet Moyer Landscaping in San Francisco. She says, "Here is a garden we designed, installed, and still maintain in the Lower Haight area of San Francisco. Its main focus is its pond surrounded by full blooms and winding pathways. This garden was a huge transformation, and very fun to install. One of the features we added was a sitting area on a raised platform where our client could sit and enjoy the garden from her favorite chair or from the flagstone bench. We added a pathway leading around the garden to create a meandering feel. We also put in a smart drip irrigation system to save water and time maintaining the garden. The plants we chose are intended to attract birds and butterflies: wild lilac, artemesia, irises, cat mint, lily-of-the-valley, various herbs, fuchsias, azaleas, and many others. We also put water lilies in the pond and surrounded it with sea pink armeria and iberis." What a relaxing space, Thea. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Very wonderful.

meander1 writes: I see lots of great plants and interesting features. I especially like how the raised rock wall is finished off with smooth capstones that look so inviting to sit a spell.
After too much holiday eating and not enough calorie burning gardening, I identify with the chubby, full faced Buddha. He's happy looking guy and should be since he's surrounded by particularly beautiful blooms and foliage.
Very nice job, Thea. Posted: 8:27 am on January 18th
