Garden Photo of the Day

Spring in Ali’s garden in Iran

We've visited Ali Mollanazar's garden in Iran several times, and it's always a pleasure to see what he's up to. Today he says, "Here, you will view pictures I took in April, the 1st month of the Spring in our country. The dates automatically printed on some of the pictures are not correct. I will, certainly, do the setting on my camera if I can spare just a little time." It's glorious SPRING, Ali, who has time for adjusting the camera settings? Everything looks wonderful! The view is still spectacular…

    What a wonderful spring. It's fun to find that you share common interests, and even common garden plants, with people across the globe!

    Ahh, the love for Japanese maple is universal and yours are lovely, Ali. I am always struck by their especially vibrant coloration in spring...they make my heart sing. In the photo with your whiter rose, I couldn't help but notice and be impressed with how plant friendly your soil looks in your planting beds. You have done a great job with that foundational part of having a bountiful garden.

    This is a cool garden. I like the layered gives a nice dimension. The stones are fantastic, and of course I love the japanese maples - the Spring display is so dynamic. Enjoy the Season, and thanks for sharing.

    You certainly have master the art of hillside gardening! Look at all the BIG rocks you have used to outline your beds. It is obvious you have put a lot of time and love into your lovely garden. Thank you for sharing. Vikki in VA

    I love seeing personal gardens in other parts of the world, reminds us that if you are a gardner you can create beauty no matter the climate. It is spring in Texas too and things are beginning to bloom and flourish. Thanks for sharing the photos, so pretty, I love the view!!

    What a wonderful time of year for everyone! Ali, I rejoice with you that your fruit trees and ornamentals are blooming, bringing beauty and the hope of a good harvest later on. Seeing that amazing view, I am reminded that it took an enormous amount of hard work and great vision to build your garden from such bare rocky slopes. Congratulations, and thank you for sharing it with us!

    Beautiful yard, the pictures we see on TV of Iran aren't always very flattering. Nice to see a real yard. Your a very good gardner, I wish I had half your talent.

    Ali, you have given me a lovely start to this day. Spring rains continue to fall outside my window, but your glorious Spring blossoms make me feel like the sun is shining! Your labors have paid off, you are surrounded by beauty!
