We’re in Yorkville, Illinois, visiting with Anita Drendel again. We saw some photos of her garden in the GPOD recently, and she’s back to share more of her favorites from the past few years.
I’m seeing a red theme here—bright red Mandevilla (Zones 10–11 or as an annual) in a red pot in the foreground, echoed by red flowers and foliage from shrubs in the distance.
What a great way to display a harvest of vegetables and herbs from the garden! They are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious and nutritious.
Here’s where some of those vegetables come from—a productive raised bed. This bed is full of cool-season vegetables like lettuce and cabbage, no doubt to be switched out for summer crops like tomatoes and peppers as the weather warms.
A statue helps to water the garden.
Red native columbines (Aquilegiacanadensis, Zones 3–8) look beautiful with a deep reddish-brown bearded iris (Iris hybrid, Zones 3–8).
This weigela (Weigelaflorida, Zones 5–9), in peak spring bloom, is paired with the tall spires of lupine (Lupinuspolyphyllus, Zones 3–7).
How’s this for a beautiful garden visitor? A scarlet tanager rests in an oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangeaquercifolia, Zones 5–9) in May, just as the hydrangea is starting to leaf out.

My name is Darlene O’Neil. I live in a small village in Moravia, New York. I had volunteered and donated my time with the VFW Auxiliary for years. This kept me busy year-round, and I would squeeze time in for everything else. I finally decided I needed to step away and spend more time with family, friends, and my home, but first I needed to focus on me. I’d forgotten how important it was to do that. How do I heal?
This is Julie Prince (Julie’s Georgia Garden), with a few pictures from the late summer and fall garden. The pool garden was started in the summer of 2020. The front-drive garden was started in 2021. Both are still “works in progress”! Things are changing constantly as I try to give the garden more height and winter interest.

These quaint, spiky mammals are known to feast on slugs and assist in sustaining the ecological equilibrium of our garden spaces. Yet, before taking steps to make your garden a sanctuary for hedgehogs, it is vital to consider some ethical and practical factors, especially regarding whether your garden is a closed-off area or is accessible.
