Judging from these photos, it certainly was a pretty year

Today’s GPOD comes from Nancy Sarpola:
"We have been gardening on a steep 1/4 acre in Corvallis, Oregon for about 25 years. I enjoy seeing gardens on the GPOD and have sent photos in several times before. Here are a few of our garden from 2017."

We had a March snowstorm, unusual in the Willamette Valley.

Epimedium 'Orange Kognin', lungwort (Pulmonaria), and daffodils bloom in April.

Midsummer blooms include Liatris and shasta daisies (Leucanthemum).

This picture is taken down toward the house from our upper pathway in late July.

More midsummer with Agapanthus and Helenium.

Toward the end of summer, the asters, Actaea, and hardy begonias bloom

Have a garden you'd like to share? Email 5-10 high-resolution photos (there is no need to reduce photo sizing before sending—simply point, shoot and send the photos our way) and a brief story about your garden to GPOD@taunton.com. Please include where you're located!

Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
