Today’s photos are from Jeff Calton (tntreeman)! He says, “This is a client’s property we maintain, and as much as I would LOVE to take credit for everything there, I cannot. Through the years we have added to, edited, and maintained it but the garden is truly the vision of the homeowner, Darryl Fontaine.
“There is always something in flower, and in June the entire property smells of roses and lavender (I think the lavender plantings remedied the deer problem). The bee hives throughout the garden keeps things humming, and even in winter the bones of the garden make it a great space in my opinion. Yes, it’s intensively planted, but it is also intensively maintained to keep everything almost in bounds.”
Gorgeous, Jeff! While it might have been Darryl’s vision (Darryl, you are one talented guy!), don’t undervalue what it takes to keep a property like this looking amazing through the years–serious creativity, motivation, energy, and skill. Bravo to both of you! **Jeff sent in so many great photos that we’ll see more from this garden tomorrow. Stay tuned!**
I’ve been getting feedback that, while all the snow pics lately are nice, everyone’s feeling the need for more GREEN pics in the GPOD these days. I think we’re all getting a bit winter-weary…. so I need your help! Send in photos of your gardens from last summer! ([email protected]) Be sure to tell me a bit about yourself and your garden when you send in your pics. You’re much more likely to be featured if I have all that stuff at hand. Thanks, everyone!
