Today’s photo is from Jan Johnsen, a garden designer in Mt. Kisco, New York. She says, “This photo shows part of a double cascade that I created for a client. Japanese junipers (Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’, USDA Hardiness Zones 3-9) line each side of the stream (they hang over large rocks that define the edges of this waterway). The stream itself leads to a lower basin. This photo was taken from a small arched Japanese-style wooden bridge. From here the visitor gets an inviting glimpse of the basin but must walk around to see the full view, an old landscape technique to prod the guest onward.” Beautiful! Thanks, Jan, for sharing this with us. Check out Jan’s blog, where you can get a video tour of this garden.
