The image on the cover of our Early Summer issue is evocative – it pulls you right in, giving you the sense that you’re standing on that grass pathway surrounded by a beautiful mix of roses (you can almost smell them, can’t you?), clematis, garden phlox, salvia, violas and yarrow. It’s not a coincidence. Our process for choosing covers at Canadian Gardening can be a difficult one. I mean, of all the beautiful photos in our issue, how is it possible to choose just one? Which will excite you the most? And how did we land on this one?
The winner is always the perfect mix of inspiration, colour and beauty. And this cover is proof – it says everything we need it to say about early summer and what this issue has to offer: lush spaces filled with vibrant plant combos, planning tips and design ideas. But most of all, this cover says magic.
