When a former coworker agreed to let me photograph her garden I jumped for garden joy. Imagine photographing something other than my flowers, and this garden is spectacular. "Seed starter" is a amazing gardener, everything is immaculate, well planned and fulfills the whole concept of having a garden. There is both plants for pleasure, and plants for food. She has started a good portion of the plants from seed herself. And she does it in minimum amount of space inside her garage. After the seeds sprout, they are transplanted into nursery trays, and eventually find their way outdoors. A streamlined process that has inspired me to do a lot more of my own seeding next spring. When I visited in the early morning, the crows were happily guarding the roof line, and dipping chunks of bread in the bird bath. Morning dew sparkled on the grass, and the lilies were in perfect form. Her pumpkins grown in a layered garden bed out back were just green blobs, but by now they should be a brilliant orange. She has a wide variety of plants, and keeps superb records of everything planted, and her vast array of plant knowledge never fails to amaze me. A dedicated plants woman, she is always willing to share information. I am going to have to schedule another visit, just to see the witch hazel turn shades of russet, and burnt oranges, in the late autumn, and I am looking forward to seeing what else is showing color at that time of year. This is a garden of all seasons, and one that gives garden joy to all who see it.
