Each morning, Janet Humble’s cat, Jazzie, perches at the edge of her flower garden like he has a job to do. And for him, it’s a serious job: to watch the birds play in the fountain.

Humble’s garden is a kind of memorial garden with cuttings from old friends no longer alive.

“It brings me a lot of joy and peace when I think of them each day I work in the garden,” says Humble of Riverview.

Humble’s photo, “Garden Song,” is this week’s winner of the Homestyle Garden Photo Contest. She’ll win a free home or garden book and she’ll be a finalist to win the grand prize at the end of the summer, a $100 gift card to English Gardens.
