Garden Photo of the Day

Surprise! Marni’s lakeside garden in New York, Day 3

Photo/Illustration: All photos courtesy of Marni LaRose-Karen

Just before I wrote yesterday’s post on Marni’s second set of photos, I emailed her asking if she had any extra backed-off shots of her garden. She’s away from home at the moment, but happened to have these 10 on her phone! So today we’re going back just one more time to Marni’s gorgeous house and garden on the lake.

Enjoy! And get out there with those cameras, people. Spring has sprung, and we wanna see it! I’m talkin’ to you, South-dwellers….

    Again Marni,,,, it is just exquisite!,,,,, How fabulous to wake up to such gorgeous surroundings, strolling the grounds with a cup of coffee. It is so beautiful and serene,, everything so perfectly manicured, yet not stuffy,,,, It is picture perfect and must be so good for the soul - with so much beauty, one can not help but feel calm and peaceful. No matter where you go, you will have to send pics of your new home,,, as I am sure you will make it truly spectacular as you have this.
    Thank you so much.

    Loved seeing the additional garden structures and more shots of the house so beautifully framed by the wonderful landscaping. Marnie, I have to ask, in the 3rd picture on the that a wisteria that seems to be cascading from the roof? My goodness, that must be an even more breathtaking sight when in bloom and, oh, the fragrance!

    Great photo composition. It's been a wonderful three days (I'm thankful for the unexpected 3rd day to end the week)I will feel sorry to see Marni go. I'm hoping she'll return to share the next stop on her journey. Thank you, Marni.

    Yesterday a photographer friend sent me this photo of Morro Bay, CA.

    In response: That is a wisteria vine. There are two on the property. A second is over the trellis in front of the cottage. The small ornamental is a Weeping Siberian Pea Tree. Delicate yellow flowers appear in late spring, then tiny pea pods hang from the limbs after it blooms. I purchased that tree from Pound Ridge Nursery. It's very special!

    I didn't think it could get any better. Day 3 is the icing on the cake. I wholeheartedly endorse everything that has been said before. Beautiful, serene, peaceful and creative. I wish I could see this garden and walk the paths. I wish you all that's good for the next phase of your life. Thanks for sharing - a real treat.

    Those are amazing shots with a cell phone. I love the misty lake shot. Thank you for the lovely 3 day tour.

    Marni, I wasn't able to look at GPOD for the last three days, but my reward was a full three days all at once savoring your photos, the garden complements its surroundings like a beautiful jewel in an exquisite setting. I hope you will share with us your next gardening adventure.
