We’re visiting with Tingshu Hu from Massachusetts again today. We’ve visited their beautiful garden in the spring when the flowering trees are stealing the show, and today they’re sharing their garden in the summer, with photos they took in June:
My husband loves to build structures. He designed and built all the structures in the yard by himself, the pergolas, fences, fish ponds, walkways, patios, green houses and chicken coops. He also enjoys taking pictures around the garden. All the pictures are taken by him. I take care of the plants and chickens. The most recent project was done last year. This project in the front yard includes two connected fish ponds, an aquaponic system, a patio, a pergola, a solarium, several garden beds and a walk way, all integrated together.

The front yard garden was started after Luke, our Harvanese dog, joined the family, in 2017. The picture shows Luke checking on some insects in the new draught tolerant garden, the red showy flower behind him is Ben Ledi rock rose (Helianthemum, Zone 4-9).
Peonies along the fence. The purple fence was built to keep Luke and his older brother Deedee safe. The spacing was decided based on Luke’s size when he was only 9 weeks old and 3 pounds.
Our favorite peony Madame Emile Debatene (Paeonia ‘Madame Emile Debatene’, Zone 3-8), Walker’s low catmint (Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’, Zone 4-9).

Red is an attention-grabbing color in the garden. Bold, loud, and bright. And it plays well with other colors as well – pair it with orange and yellow for a hot, exciting bed, or blues and purple to created a deep, rich, moody tone. Here are some of my favorite red blooms for the garden… what reds are you loving in your garden?
We’re back in Massachusetts, visiting with Tingshu Hu again. Yesterday we took a look at summer in her front garden, today she’s sharing views from her beautiful back garden, with photos all taken last June.
LIKE EVERYONE around this time of year, I get into a “looking back while looking ahead” combined mindset. Today I want to do just that, but with a sort of ecological filter, taking stock of how things in the garden fared in the bigger environmental picture and what opportunities lie ahead for me to read nature’s signals even more closely and be an ever better steward of the place.
