Mike's garden

This horseshoe-shaped backyard garden belongs to nature photographer Mike MacDonald. Wildflowers, grasses and sedges have been planted for interest during all four seasons.

A trumpet vine is growing on the lattice of the garage.



The garden is only a year old, but the plants are already mature and have filled in.

Little blue stem and New England aster are the most visible plants. The dried seed-heads of blazing star are visible in the foreground and a rattlesnake master peaks in at the right of the photo.

A split-rail fence looks great and keeps the garden neat.

 

Asters
Goldenrod and Aster

Goldenrods, New England asters, sedges and the seed heads of yellow sunflowers compose this beautiful fall garden.

The same garden in 2002 although nothing is in bloom. Now see the grown colors and textures from the flowers and grasses as they go dormant.
