This is a total treat. Neal emailed on Friday and sent us an amazing slideshow of the making of his garden. If this doesn't inspire, nothing will. (Thanks, Neal!)

Hope i got this in in-time. It's a slideshow of my backyard here in
"Stuy-Heights". It's been a labour of love, starting from Fall 2005 (with a sledge hammer!) and finally finishing in Summer 2007 (with a little mulch). Well not quite, but now i'm just going to sit back with a cuppa and watch my plants grow...

Prior to us moving here and having a yard, I knew nothing about gardening, but I got Gardening for Dummies (read it from cov-cov), The City Gardener "Urban Oasis" by Matt James (BBC/HGTV fame) and many online resources - now i can tell you anything you need to know abut DIRT!

The slideshow is pretty extensive (50+) but it really shows the
transformation from the forest of weeds to a little urban shangri-la.
