Today’s photos are from Renata Chase in Higganum, Connecticut. She says, “You’ve shamed me into sharing some garden photos. I don’t own a camera so these were all taken with a cell phone.
“My gardens are planted on the steep slopes surrounding our deck with pergola. My goal was to create a lush area where we entertain with lunches and dinners alfresco all summer long. With the ceiling fan, we were even able to a have a couple of dinners outside during that oppressive heat we had last month. I’ve included a shot of a lunch we had last year!”
Mwahahaha, my shaming is WORKING! Thanks so much, Renata. I don’t mind camera phone shots one bit. It’s just great to get even a glimpse into someone’s garden, because gardens are so personal, and we are all voyeurs! I love how you’ve used the color red as a unifying theme in your garden. Plus I’m a huge fan of pergolas, and that fountain is stunning. Thanks so much for sharing!
See? Renata listened, too! You guys are on a roll! You know you wanna be in the cool crowd…..so I’ll say it again: This is prime time to take some photos in your garden. So get out there with your cameras and send some in! Email them to [email protected]
