Garden Photo of the Day

Springtime in Jeff’s garden

10 photos total

Picea koreana 'Silberlocke'

Welcome back everyone! Here’s hoping we are back in business! Today’s photos are from Jeff Calton in Tennessee.

He says, “I do a walkabout every morning and every evening just to see what’s new and to snip, deadhead, and pull what weeds have popped up. It’s a surprise every time–sometimes good and sometimes not so much.  Last evenings walk was good!  Finally things are starting to show their stuff.”

It all looks great to me, Jeff! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Well, Jeff, you must start your day off with a smile and end it in the same way...everything looks great! So glad you kept some of the head planters for yourself...they are quite captivating.

    I know the layout in this new format is wonky. I have a few options I'll play with in the next few posts.

    Hi Michelle, Jeff and Michaele! Happy to see Jeff's Yoga Froggo on the return of GPOD. Been wondering when GPOD would return. I love the site's new look and additional features BTW.

    Congrats to Tim Vojt on his feature on the current issue which I yet have to get my hands on. Can't wait!

      Thanks for the congrats! It's so exciting for me and fortuitously planned; this spring we had to cut down the enormous cherry tree that created the shade on the shady side, so it soon will have to change to a somewhat different garden. In the meantime it will be somewhat scorched and not very photo-worthy!

        I'm sure you'll welcome that as a new project. Can't wait to see the transformation. Have a great week Tim! -Cherry

    glad you're up and running but man one has to jump thru hoops to comment.

      They're testing our loyalty...

      I agree with you completely.. I don't understand why we can not enlarge the pictures. I have a question about your succulents... How do you winter them over?

      Hey Jeff! Looks great, despite the photo quality. Finally got the time to go back to see what I missed. I think I have that same phygelius and Iove the heuchera or heucherella.

    no clue who designed and built this new website but it blows bigtime. nothing positive to say about any of it

      You know, you might be right Jeff. So far, it sucks, maybe it will become a bit more familiar soon - hopefully!

        P.S. I really enjoyed seeing your gardens.

    Hi Jeff. I built this site, along side lots of data and user studies.

    Im sorry you mind that the GPOD experience is different, but we are working to make this transition as seamless as possible. DISQUS (our new comments system) was implemented to get the garden discussion started on numerous topics, not just GPOD.

    Thank you for transitioning alongside us. We can only hope that you continue visiting for botanical inspiration.

      Antonio, thanks for your reply but my opinion still stands. GPOD is not only different it doesn't work. no enlargements (unless you changed that since i last tried), many do not want yet another account just to comment, it's confusing to many not just me as i have received emails and FB messages asking HOW i was able to comment. the hope for a seamless transition has passed, it's anything but seamless. it's just my opinion but a perfectly good working format was pretty much destroyed. i still have nothing positive to say about it

    Great pictures Jeff! Thanks for sharing!
