photos and captions: Terrible Real Estate Agent Photographs (Tumblr). I may have linked to this before, it’s the kind of thing that amuses me. “Inexplicably bad property photographs. It’s that simple.”
photo essay: Native Garden Ideas Galore: A Washington D.C. Neighborhood Park (Nuts for Natives). “Recent renovations to Hearst Park in Washington D.C. serve up … excellent examples of native plants we can use in our own gardens.” Including inkberry, winterberry, river birch, viburnums, Florida flame azaleas, dogwoods, muhly grass, oakleaf hydrangea, Virginia sweetspire, etc. All are suited to the American mid-Atlantic and most will work in New England.
