A Peek into Secret Not-Quite Gardens

April 26th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

I’ve got a pretty decent panoramic view from the roof of my building. I can see the Empire State Building, the Hudson River, downtown, and so on. But it’s also fun to look down, where I can see into several backyards. This is one to the west.  It’s not very green, is it? I would make this more of a garden if this were mine.  But maybe they’re all renters and they can’t. If I move my camera a little to the right …

… I get more of a Rear Window-type view. Everyone has a terrace! There’s no one there now, but when the weather gets warm, as it’s starting to, there will be more life in the back, and parties. I live in the front though, so I can only see when I’m on the roof. I’m not Jimmy Stewart with a telescope/camera. I can’t tell you anything about my backyard neighbors. I’m sure they’re all very lovely people. Not a murderer among them.

    How about dropping a couple of seed bombs into the not-so-green garden no. 1? Lots of directions for making them on-line. I have always wanted to throw a few but don’t really know where I’d throw them.

    Is a seed bomb a real thing?

    Seed bombs are real although I have never made any myself. I really like the idea of them.
    This URL will take you to directions on how to make them.
