a garden update

April 18 2014 052

i have mentioned our neighbor’s yard on here a few times

one of my favorite yards in the neighborhood

the one that always leaves me inspired and speechless

i like to call our neighbor “green man” because anything he sticks in the ground, grows fast and huge

in a way he is like a green godfather to me because he is always very generous with his cuttings

as well as with all his knowledge and advice

here is a little look around his magical garden

joining Annie with how does your garden grow?

ps- i apologize for not having the chance to visit a lot of you last week. Lily and i were on vacation in costa rica and even though i linked up, i tried to not really be on here
