a garden update. platanillo, costa rica. part one

June 13 2014 029

the garden all around Deanna’s house (an adventure. costa rica) is like a smaller version of the fairchild botanical garden

it is lush and tropical

there are different kinds of ginger, orchids, bamboo, airplants…

it is no surprise though

with Deanna’s good eye and her husband Chip’s professional landscaping hands, they have created a magical place that one can appreciate from any window when inside the house

i mean, i got to see hummingbirds on the ginger flowers while i was taking a shower!

oh and the birds…

beautiful birds

the picture above was taken from the laundry room

a laundry room with the most amazing view
