Garden Photo of the Day

Small Garden, Big Color

Intense color combinations make a big splash

My name is Wema Mojar, and I’ve been gardening now for two years. I currently reside in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. I just want to share my garden pictures. I work hard every morning to water, and now my plants have turned out to be an awesome sight everyday in my backyard.

I hope everyone will enjoy my garden photos.

Bright annuals fill the garden with color. From left to right: a yellow-leaf form of sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas), a magenta Petunia hybrid, yellow French marigolds (Tagetes patula), and red geraniums (Pelargonium hybrid).

From another view, the yellow-green foliage of creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’, Zones 3–9) is visible spilling out between the annuals. This little creeping plant is often used in annual displays, but it is a perennial and will come back year after year in most climates.

Behind the flowers, lots of vegetables thrive. Chicken-wire supports are a cheap and effective way to keep vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers growing up instead of out, making the most of a small garden space.

Magenta flowers and yellow-green foliage make for a brilliant combination that won’t be overlooked.
