I took this picture one day in late spring, when the morning sun appeared through the trees and perfectly choreographed the interactive dance between the hardy begonia (Begonia grandis, zones 6 to 9) and the autumn fern (Dryopteris erythrosora, zones 5 to 9). This only happens for a few minutes each morning, but what a spectacular way to start the day. I wouldn't miss it.

Jay Sifford Garden Design SaveEmail Light. A good artist, like a keen gardener, understands light: its intensity, its daily and seasonal variations, and the shadows it creates. The wise appropriation of light can emphasize texture in a beautiful way. Don’t overlook the opportunity to employ the sun to backlight certain vignettes in your garden. Even though scenes such as the one shown here are fleeting, they bring a layer of richness and excitement to the garden.

Totally unique to me a transparent begonia leaf with leaf background. Stunning Jay Sifford. Thank you. Happy Mother's Day 2014.

The dance of light. Sunlight, particularly at dawn or dusk, has both a mystical and a sensual quality. If your garden resides in the shade, you are particularly fortunate in that you can see shafts of light piercing the tree canopy, highlighting its vignettes of choice throughout the day. I would urge you to open yourself to the sensual interplay among light, shadows and your garden elements. It can be mesmerizing. The scene shown here occurs for about 15 minutes each day in my woodland garden. The morning sun pierces the canopy and backlights the ferns and begonias for an amazing yet fleeting show.

Shad plants with interesting light plays between ferns and Caladiums?
