Photo contest: Koi pond, Japanese maples in the morning

Special to The Detroit News

This striking image from Kevin McKay of Plymouth named “Morning Sun Filtering Through the Trees” shows his mature shade garden with a koi pond surrounded by daylilies and grasses as well as Japanese maples and hydrangeas. His peaceful yard has been featured on a number of pond and garden tours. “The arch in the background was built by my father as a birthday present many years ago,” writes McKay via email. As this week’s winner of the Homestyle Garden photo contest, he’ll win a free home or garden book; he’ll also be a finalist for the grand prize at the end of the summer, a $100 gift card to English Gardens along with a basket of gardening goodies.
