Today’s photos are from Mary McDermott. She says, “Here is one of my many gardens in Mays Landing, New Jersey (South Jersey). This is the back yard garden, “The Swoop.” The photo was taken two weeks ago.
The Swoop was begun in April, 2012, and 95% of the original plants I propagated from cuttings or divisions. There’s a repeating pattern of perennials throughout the 200-foot long garden, supplemented with annuals as the whim strikes me. When we moved to this house in the spring of 2011, the back yard was a blank slate – a bare rectangle of lawn. The Swoop blooms from the earliest daffodils through mums and asters in the fall, and is the most delightful and whimsical garden I’ve ever had.
In July, my yard was featured in a local garden club tour, and The Swoop was the centerpiece – in one photo you’ll see a local artist working plein air capturing the curves of The Swoop.”
So, so awesome, Mary! This garden is so much FUN! You must show us more areas of your garden. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
