I enjoyed the overall tour of your garden. The sweet woodruff and lily of the valley is a good idea.


Your garden is so beautiful, and magical; it feels as though I'm in the Japanese Garden of the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. The colors, the textures, the bits of non-floral visual notes make a delightful tour.


Thanks for the "big picture" look at the garden. So often we (well, me) get tied up in detail shots of specific blooms and sometimes it can be hard to get a feel for the garden as a whole.

In the third from last picture, what's the ground cover type thing in the foreground?


Lisa — I'm letting the woodruff and lilies fight it out as they are both rather aggressive!

Altoon — Thanks for those lovely comments — especially since we've been to the Brooklyn Japanese garden and were very impressed with it.

Erin — That is Geranium macrorrhizum (big root geranium). It comes with whitish, pink and magenta flowers and is wonderful in dry shade under big trees (here maple and silver maple).


Love it when the macro lens gets a rest. What a timeless spring is unfolding in your garden.


Your garden is as lovely panned back as it is close up. I agree with all of the above comments, but I also like the tulips comming up with the dandelions.

Being familiar with your garden, I have to point out to others who haven't had the pleasure, the amazing creative nature of your photography. These views are so expansive in so many ways; they made me feel as if I was exploring a new garden!I especially enjoyedview from under lilacs and of course, love the "found objects."
