Garden Photo of the Day

Linda and Jerry’s garden in Florida

Today’s photos are from one of my favorite people–garden designer Susan Morrison, who lives near San Francisco, California. She’s also coauthor of an awesome gardening book, Garden Up: Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces. Susan was in Naples, Florida, recently, giving a few garden talks, and she fell in love with her hostess’s bayside garden.

She sent in a few photos to share, and says, “I couldn’t believe how lush Naples was in the middle of January! Linda and Jerry Brown’s garden is mostly foliage, but even in winter there were a few giant, tropical blooms on display. It still seems amazing to me to see so many plants that I think of as houseplants, not only growing like they’re on steroids, but planted in the ground instead of a container.” So lush, Susan. Thanks!

    There is something so appealing about a generous sized covered seating area that looks out on beautiful landscaping...just makes me want to plop down in one of those comfortable chairs and daydream...(ha, and the daydreams would be about having a generous sized covered seating area that looks out on beautiful landscaping where I could plop down in a comfortable chair and...ok, you get the point).
    In other words...everything is very lovely and alluring.

    Looks like a great place to get away from the 2 degree temperature here this morning... it's already up to a sweltering 16 degrees. I can imagine all those tropical plants radiating warmth.
