Horticultural Jewel

An old friend from high school,
Mike Munsterman, 
is a phenominal horticulturist.
Mike studied at Texas A & M and
owns a company called Out Side Garden.

Mike has graciously invited us
into his own private space
to have a look around.

Mike's home is located in the historic Kessler Park
area of Oak Cliff in Dallas. 

Mike's home has just gone up for sale
so if you fall in love...
it can be yours.

So many happy colors...

...and varieties...

...and textures.

So much love and attention...

I love the culvert planter!

Places to visit with loved ones...

or alone in thought.

Aren't these lanterns unusual?
I like the colors.

This is a great idea!

No brainer here. Who could compete?

We have a huge pot like this...with a gaudy paint job.
I'm going to have to repaint ours like yours Mike.
Much better! 

Vitex and coneflowers...great combo

Lots of pots... change things up at will.

Water for the little feathered friends.

I love the simplicity of these fences panels.

Great place for a glass of wine.


Salmon on the grill anyone?

What a great place for a dinner party!

A special place...a special talent.

Thank you Mike
for sharing it with us all!
