So last week I was in Columbus, Ohio, for a conference, and since I just happened to be in town, guess who I visited?? Tim Vojt! That’s right, our own Vojt, whose garden I’ve featured HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE! I’m really getting into visiting you guys–it’s FUN!

Tim’s garden, as we all knew anyway, is so amazing, and it was even better in person, trust me. I’m hoping that you’ll see it in the pages of Fine Gardening sometime in the future, so I won’t show you too many of the photos I took that morning, but I thought I’d share this passageway that Tim hasn’t shared with us before. He says the embedded tiles are left over from a tiling job inside the house, and I think they turn this pretty path into something extra special.

I’ve also posted a couple of shots of his containers on his front steps. Gorgeous, and nary a flower in sight! Thanks, Tim, for letting me visit in person, and for being so darned nice. I hope I can come back again soon!

***Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, when I’ll be featuring the front garden of one of Tim’s neighbors. It was completely different, but just as wonderful.***

    I just love seeing Tim's garden,it gives me hope of what my garden can become since we are in the same hardiness zone. Hopfully I get the nerve to post my garden one day in the future

    Beautiful pots, I love the textures and colors. It is amazing how beautiful the leaves blend together. The paths with the pop of color is also inspirational. Thanks for the peek into your garden.

    As much as I love plants (and I have a LOT of serious love for for plants!), my favorite picture was of two happy gardeners...I smiled right back when I clicked on that picture. Anyway, that looks like a delightful path to stroll down. Are those sprays of flowers from lavender that spill over? I like how the there is variety in height to keep the eye stimulated and encouraged to look about.
    The composition of pots up the stairway is beautiful and welcoming.

    The ceramic tiles mesh very well with the red brick, I imagine folks running out to buy a box of tiles just to enhance a mundane garden path. I like that old fashioned garden gate too, it's open and inviting even when closed. I went back to look at all the other photos, truly a labor of love. Thanks for sharing.

    Vojt :) common mistake! It is lavender spilling onto the path; I can't remember which variety, but it does well here. There is a spring photo of this path at its most colorful on a previous GPOD-January 27th. It hardly looks like the same path, but it is!

    Fixed your name, Tim--sorry about that! I once knew someone with the last name Vogt, and I think that's what messes me up.

    I really like the use of foliage in the containers along the steps! What is the charteuse foliage plant along the steps shown in the photo? Is it Hypericum c. 'Brigadoon' by any chance? Tim shows a great use of color, contrasts, and textures in his plantings, that is my kind of gardening!

    Duranta erecta 'Gold Mound'. It's been in that same pot for several years and responds well to hard pruning. Great (not hardy) container plant!

    Stunning, as always. I hope you make the pages of the magazine. I never get tired of seeing great gardens like yours.

    Beautiful as always! Glad Michelle found you and was able to visit.

    You really have a masters touch in your plant combinations...what fun it must have been for Michelle to actually see your garden in real life! I'd enjoy spending an afternoon viewing your gardens and chatting about your design expertise and knowledge!
