Garden Photo of the Day

The ultimate garden hideaway

Who wouldn’t want to steal away to this garden nook? Tom Nelson and Randy Bolin designed this structure for their hot tub in their Oakland, California, garden. It’s nestled into a tropical setting just out of sight of their home and features artwork and momentos from their travels. The open roof-work allows them to catch a glimpse of the stars and moon through the vines at night.

Welcome to the Fine Gardening Garden Photo of the Day blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.
