I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if this comment is done with improper etiquette.
There's snow on the ground here today, and maybe that's part of the reason I find this garden so lovely and lush -- I would like to be there right now! Can you tell me where it is, please? In fact, I would love it if there is a way to include location (and USDA zone, if the picture was taken in the U.S.) on all pictures. This information would help gardeners know which plants they could hope to grow in their own gardens. Unfortunately, I cannot grow hostas in AZ. Last spring, I invested in several lovely daylilies, andam not sure how they'll do here. The plants themselves survived the summer and fall, but blossom scapes were nibbled by deer. Now that winter has arrived and browse is scarce, the deer are eating the plants as well. Sighing!

Thank you for posting this lovely picture. I'll be thinking about it all day.

I agree it is beautiful but alas it is not my own garden. The garden belongs to Spencer Barrett of the University of Toronto.

Rather than looking for plants that thrive in Canada, why not search gardens in your climate zone. You may find some new favorites that will be happy in Arizona. Here is a list of botanic gardens in Arizona; maybe some of them are close enough to your location that you might visit in person.

Also, have you checked out the Southwest Gardening Forum? Lots of good folks over there! Thumbs up

Beautiful wall. Is this what is called a dry wall? Just stacked rocks without mortar?

I have only a little experience building stone walls (and it is a lot harder than it looks!!) but I can see mortar in the left side of the image so perhaps the wall was build to have the appearance of a dry stone wall.

The garden and the wall belong to Spencer Barrett of the University of Toronto.
