Pics of my "tropical" New York City yard. I am in a USDA gardening zone 7 and I use plants that are hardy to our winters, are easy to overwinter indoors, or use as annuals to get the tropical look this far north.
Please ask for my permission and give me credit if you use any of my pics!
Thanks for looking!

My yard is getting redone!
Hi everyone! Sorry I am starting up my seasonal blog a bit later than usual (already Late May!). The deck in my yard is gone and is in the process of being replaced by pavers. I don't have anything planted yet in the backyard but that will change quickly this weekend.
Here are some pics of the process *before is during construction and after is when pavers are down*
A few closeups of new planting areas
Future Canna Bed
New shade garden!
You'll see some perennial hibiscus here in a few weeks!
Another shade garden (I'm looking for a needle palm!)
A trellis for some flowers and cucuzza
This will be palmy in a few weeks
New Vegetable bed
I'm excited to start planting!
Thanks for looking and the pool will look much nicer in a few days.
