Welcome to Day 2 of Tatyana's garden in Washington! Yesterday we saw lots of great elements from Tatyana's garden, but today we see a more backed-off view. If you missed what she had to say yesterday, here's a recap: "Recently, my garden was on the Gig Harbor Garden Tour benefiting literacy programs for kids and adults. More than a thousand people visited during the tour. The garden is 9 years old. It's eclectic with features of an English cottage garden, some formal elements and some oriental and northwestern features. The guests liked the lushness and variety of plants and their combinations, mixing perennials, shrubs, vegetables, and herbs. Many of them said that the garden has a peaceful, calm atmosphere and that it is understatedly elegant. I do all the garden work beside the lawn care. I like to dig, rake, plant, divide, start new projects, and turn the lawn into plant beds. I learn through success and failure, garden books, blogs, and tours. I try to grow only plants that I love. I believe a garden reflects one's individual taste and should be a space that works best for its owners." Even more beautiful. Thanks so much, Tatyana, for sharing your garden with us! **Be sure to visit Tatyana's blog, MySecretGarden, for even more views.

I'll say it again: This is prime time to take some photos in your garden. So get out there with your cameras and send some in! Email them to GPOD@taunton.com.
