New York Times Mini-Garden by Judy Kameon

I have to admit this morning I am still well in the throws of a stomach bug….I hate being sick and don’t like to let things like this get the better of me, so I am powering through.  In this state I do however find it very hard to concentrate, focus on my usual to do list and I generally find that I am ridiculously listless.  So I was relieved when I happened across this….it has snapped me out of my ooky stomach doldrums and given me inspiration to make this post.  And for that, I am relieved, to me there is nothing worse than being sick, except being sick and getting nothing done because of it.

This garden plan makes me so happy, I can imagine going to the nursery with this and enjoying every minute of sourcing plants to work into this scheme.

There are a couple extra images here where you can see the frame that was used to make this little garden’s shape as well as the set up the photographer had to pull off to get the image (I love to see the behind the scenes stuff like that).

And, joy! A plant list! (go here to see it just big enough to read – maybe).

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
