The tropical gardens are coming out of the woodwork, and I can barely restrain myself from calling a travel agent. Today's photos are from Zach Daudert in Panama! Zach says, "'This is my garden in El Valle de Anton, Panama. I've been working on the garden for about 5 years now. I'm originally from Colorado so I had to learn a lot about my new tropical environment and all the plants. The great thing is that anything will grow here! El Valle (the valley in English) is a wonderful little village located inside the caldera of an extinct volcano so we have rich volcanic soil.
        The property is just under 1/2 acre in size. I have designed the garden into different spaces; a water garden off the back patio, an herb and vegetable garden, and various ornamental gardens. I recently created a yin/yang rock garden as well. I am always cruising nurseries and taking hikes, hunting for new additions - I can't resist having one of everything, which is a real design challenge." Well, I can't find any evidence of one-of-each-itis in this garden, Zach. It's so restful and beautiful. And that's a goreous pup, too! Thanks so much for sharing. And feel free to send us more photos of gardens in Panama!
