Our teeny NYC apartment doesn’t have outdoor space (except a rusty fire escape), but Alex and I often daydream about having a backyard. These garden photos are so inspiring. Can you imagine having a glass of wine and playing Scrabble out there in the evenings?

Plus, a Manhattan penthouse garden below…

Yowza! This place is for sale for a cool $4.5 million, if anyone’s looking. :)

P.S. NYC rooftop houses, and a guy with a hammock.
