Garden Photo of the Day

Fresh photos from Ali’s garden in Iran

Today we’re revisiting Ali Mollanazar in Iran! We’ve visited Ali twice before. The first time he sent photos (refresh your memory HERE), the second a video (refresh your memory HERE.) Today he’s back with two new photos (only 2? We need more, Ali!) of his garden, and it seems to be getting better and better!  Ali says that the first photo is incorrectly dated. It was, in reality, taken on August 3rd. Thanks, Ali, for checking in again this season! I always love seeing your garden.

Keep sending in photos of your gardens, everyone!

    It was a pleasure seeing new views of your changing garden, Ali. You've accomplished wonders. As always, I'm envious of your rocks and mountain of which we have none in Delaware.

    This time I looked back at your whole website and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some might think that having pictures of people in a garden is distracting on a garden site, but I especially liked seeing you and your wife and family working and relaxing in the many garden areas and paths. This gave a fuller picture of your environment, life, how you use your land, and who did all this wonderful creating!

    I also liked your comment that designing a garden doesn't mean one keeps on adding and adding "stuff"; sometimes taking away "stuff" is equally or even more important.

    Ali, it is so nice to have you visit again and even though you only treated us to two pictures this go around. it opened the door to revisiting you previous sharings and spending time again on your website. I totally agree with GrannieAnnie that it was a delight to see you, your family members, your younger man helper and all those gorgeous flowers and abundant fruit and vegetables.Your property and all your additions to its beautification have made it a very special place.

    What a charming garden, Ali! I enjoyed all the colors and diverse use of your stone, pavers and rock. You've created a special oasis for your family.

    Ali your garden is fantastic! I went back to look at your previous post and then your website. It is a reminder that, no matter where we live, gardening is a universal passion and brings the same joy whatever our circumstances and whoever we are. A further reminder of what we have in common were the photos of all our familiar plants such as roses, viburnums, sedums, iris and all our local fruits and vegetables, all growing happily and in abundance a world away!

    I hope your Parkinsons is still allowing you to participate in the tasks you enjoy most, though just being in that garden must bring peace and happiness to you. Your grandsons are very fortunate to have such a wonderful teacher of both the beauty and bounty of nature, and must grow up to follow in your footsteps. Thank you for sharing your lovely garden and your inspiring thoughts with us.

    Ali its great to see your place again. I so enjoy the red tile and the way you are looking down. The rock pavers are fun and inviting. Its always a great treat for us gardeners to see gardens in other countries! Thanks for giving us another look into your part of the world!

    Ali, I love your garden. :) I can just imagine in my mind all the enjoyment you have tending it. The stone and brick work is very nice and I like the different areas. Wish I could come and stroll through while you tell me all about how you developed it. Please do send us more. :)
