This shady little nook can be found along an interior wall in the flower garden at Stonecrop Gardens in Cold Spring, New York. The wall of green soothes your eyes and provides a break from the abundance of color in the exuberant garden beds leading up to it. If you look closely, you’ll see the sun peeking through.

Welcome to the Fine Gardening Garden Photo of the Day blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.

    This would be such a wonderful retreat when it gets warmer ...

    Nothing like a nice cool quite spot on a hot day. There is also something very satisfying about sitting on something solid. Lovely photo, a worthy oasis
