Sally Barker is excited to share an updated glimpse at her garden in Baltimore, Maryland. 

"Knowing that gardens change constantly, here are some 2016 photos from my garden which has been featured on GPOD in the past.  Sometimes I would prefer if every plant would stay exactly the same—but we all know this is never the case. This year it became necessary to either remove large shrubs or enlarge a bed which, being a garden nut, I of course chose to do.  Some newbies: a gorgeous variegated dogwood, a yellow Bartzella peony (one lovely bloom this 1st year), and an incredibly long-blooming (and butterfly magnet) agastache Blue Boa.  I especially love how the oakleaf hydrangea now wraps a tree, surrounded by hostas and hakenochloa grass."
