Sunday Drive

Gardening Inspiration

Yesterday, I took a drive around my neighborhood and went up into Crown Heights which is the historic neighborhood just north of me and photographed some of the spring landscaping. 

This first home is in my neighborhood (Edgemere Park). It's surrounded by white tulips and periwinkle pansies. But I couldn't get all of the yard in one shot. So you don't get the full effect. My fantasy is that my yard will look like a smaller version of this someday. I'm working on it.

Then I moved on to Crown Heights...

Have a Happy Monday...only five days till the weekend!
