I have absolutely no inspiration about my yard. Zip. Zilch. Nada. It's hot, things are wilty or even dead, and I can't bring myself to endure the heat long enough to do anything about it.
I'm assuming I'm not the only one in this predicament, so I brought back a few photos of perfect Cuban yards to share as inspiration. Oh sure, they have that whole tropical, everything-grows-without-watering-it benefit, but since I have things like running water and Home Depot I think it evens the playing field.

This was in Colon Cemetery, not someone's front yard, but I loved it. I wonder what my neighbors would do if I followed their not-so-subtle suggestions about trimming the hedges and made my yard look like this?
