Jay Sifford from North Carolina reflects on what makes his garden special.
"Looking through my front garden photos from last spring, I realized that I’d forgotten how much color punctuates my major garden directives of texture and structure. I removed my turf probably 7 years ago and installed a very wide meandering terraced gravel pathway through the middle of the space, wide enough so that plants could soften its edges. The result is a stroll garden that seduces the imagination as the visitor makes his way down to the conifer amphitheater and finally to the Japanese fern garden by the creek. These photos gave this winter-weary Charlotte gardener a boost on a January day!"
