Today's photos are from Mark Meyer in East Haddam, Connecticut, who says, "I thought I would share some pictures of my garden that I have worked on for nearly 20 years. While the property is less than 1/2 of an acre, I managed to landscape every square foot! It has been the joy of my life but because my health has deteriorated and I am no longer able to take proper care of it we will be moving in about 2 years. At least I will cherish the memories. I had so many pictures that it was difficult to choose. I hope you enjoy them." This is such a wonderful garden, Mark--so relaxed and obviously well-cared-for and loved. I love it!
