While on vacation my husband and I always try to make time to walk certain neighborhoods. Sure, we're looking for all sorts of things, but between you and me, I'm a total garden snoop! Here's why:

I love to see how different folks use plants and flowers in combinations, like what types of things they're using, if they're repurposed, or what kind of handmade projects you can see. If you don't get a chance to get out on vacation that often or are usually traveling for work, snooping Flickr is a great escape. 15 minutes of garden watching there can recharge your batteries in a jiffy!

The small hidden garden above was a fun Flickr find because I don't think I have travel plans to Dublin any time soon (sadly). Do you snoop the gardens of others while on vacation or do you mainly stick to the big attractions? Share your stories in the comments below!
