Arianne is letting us into her beautiful garden today.
I want to share my Zone 4B garden with you. This is a mixture of both perennials and annuals, mostly planted from seeds.
The low evening light brings out the magical colors of this garden. In the foreground, bright red impatiens (Impatienshawkeri, Zones 9–11 or as an annual) grow with purple vinca (Catharanthusroseus, Zones 10–11 or as an annual). People often choose light flower colors for an evening garden, but these darker rich colors look fantastic.
In another view of the evening garden, the purples of stock (Matthiolaincana, annual) and gomphrena (Gomphrena globosa, Zones 9–11 or as an annual) in the foreground look moody and magnificent.
In the daytime, the red of a coleus (Plectranthusscutellarioides, Zones 10–11 or as as annual) in the foreground picks up notes of red from flowers and the door in the background. You can see that this is a small garden, but there is so much beauty and interest in this space.
There is so much diversity in this garden, from conifers to perennials to the bold leaves of a canna (Canna hybrid, Zones 8–10 or as a tender bulb).
I love the patio area and the walkway back to the garage. What a wonderful space to share a meal.
At night, a well-placed garden light highlights the incredible flowers of a coneflower (Echinacea hybrid, Zones 4–9).
This corner is mostly about foliage, but the wide range of colors and textures ensures a lot of interest and contrast. Hanging baskets and taller shrubs make use of the vertical space.
The gold-leaved coleus in the two containers seem to glow almost as bright and welcoming as the windows of the house.
Cheery pink coneflowers, a great native perennial, are as good for birds and pollinators as

Today we’re visiting with Rachel, a gardener and artist living in Elgin, Illinois (Zone 5b). She moved in 2022 to 1.5 acres and is in the process of designing and planting a fabulous front garden. She’s also diving into forest restoration for the back half-acre—making it beautiful for wildlife and her kiddos.
A few weeks ago, frequent GPOD contributor Cherry Ong took us along on her visit to Bellevue Botanical Garden in Bellevue, Washington (GPOD on the Road: Bellevue Botanical Garden) but she sent too many photos to share that day, so we’re going back today to see some more of the beautiful images of this inspiring public garden.
Several times a year a visitor to our garden is shocked to find a rogue steak knife pierced downward in one of the beds, as if it were an escapee from our kitchen knife block. I’m always quick to tell them that it’s indeed where I meant to place it, and that I haven’t found any tool as great as a serrated knife when it comes to removing grass or root systems. It’s perfect for edging small areas or pulling up entire sheets of grass; all I have to do is start on one side and pull up as I carefully saw back and forth. It can be a cheap purchase from a thrift store—or in my case, the way I finally convinced my husband that we needed a new set of kitchen knives.
Moss campion plant (Silene acaulis) is a rock garden plant native to the Arctic tundra and high mountains of Europe and North America. In the U.S., it is confined to the Western mountains and New England, particularly Maine and New Hampshire. Its mat-forming, evergreen foliage is found tucked away in elevations too high for trees to grow, with harsh winters and short summers. While it cannot survive in the shade, it prefers moist soil.
As the seasons start to change, now is the perfect time to take a trip to your nearest garden. Enjoy a long walk and catch the very last of late summer, while watching leaves turn amber and gold. Make sure to use your 2-for-1 Gardens card on your visit to ensure you’re making savings on your day out.
