to do. to see. to hear. to love

hey guess what??? my backyard was featured on apartment therapy today for their great outdoors edition! i was so excited when i was scrolling through google reader and saw a picture of my backyard. at first, taken back wondering where did this come from? i am super happy and honored to have made the cut again. ( my last apartment was featured a few years back!)

the one thing i didn’t mention(and wish i would have) in the post was that i share the yard with my lovely neighbors dede and tom and their pup, gary! they are such great, nice, charming neighbors and we all love the backyard.  tom has been helping me garden and dede loves being able to bask in the sun. gary, of course, and wylie are best of friends and the backyard is a luxury for them to run around in!

check out the link here!

here are some new pics of the garden. things are still blooming and i love waking up in the morning and walking around to see how everything is doing, you know just to say a little hello! the pomegranate flowers are showering the tree and ground with bright red flowers. the loquats are reedy to eat. the lemons i have been using for weeks now.

we also have finally started the garden. the herbs are going strong! so far we have planted: tomatoes (3 kinds), zucchini, strawberries, mesclun, kale, cilantro, fingerling potatoes, eggplant, beans, and lots of peppers! the berry bush from last year looks so pretty too! i hope it brings us some berries!

and of course, a few detail shots for fun!

thank you so much apartment therapy!!

    I love that you are able to incorporate indoor styles with an outside setting – it creates an unusual setting that encourages a person to just step in and enjoy the view.
