Today's photos are from John Markowski in central New Jersey. John says, "I've been gardening for about ten years and started from scratch at my current home about seven years ago. My biggest inspiration was my grandfather who obsessed over his roses and azaleas and ironically, I can't grow either on my current property. As you can tell, I am a huge fan of ornamental grasses and native shrubs and perennials. My biggest challenges are deer, wet clay soil, and lack of time - have two children (6 and 9) and a job that takes up too much of my time." For someone who's pressed for time, your garden is gorgeous, John! Thanks for sharing it with us.  ***John has a blog! Check it out HERE.
