a garden update. in our neighborhood

September 28 2013 098

although Will did a bunch of yard work on saturday by cutting down even more tree limbs (see ya carambola), for today’s post i was inspired by Jean and her walk down the lane

as you can tell by our yard, we live in a very lush and tropical area

tropical because it is miami after all and lush because of the area where we live

trust me when i tell you that not every place in miami is lush

in this neighborhood however, just about every yard is a tropical jungle

but, you don’t have to try to be sneaky and look into your neighbor’s yard to admire some nature

all you have to do around here is go for a walk and enjoy the sidewalks

joining Annie for how does your garden grow?

there are beautiful poinciana trees that create huge canopies of shade providing much needed shelter from the hot miami sun
