After Harvey

After Harvey, the freestanding garage and the surrounding gardens are destroyed. I picked up broken off pieces of plumeria to bring back to Austin to plant in pots to start again. Gardens are resilient and so are we!

Delightful addition to the shady garden - Jacobinia. This plant has a tropical look, but made it through our zone 8 winter just fine. Not an easy plant to find, but I recently discovered some in a local nursery and quickly added them to my cart.

All things gardening

Garden tours, nursery visits, neighborhood walks, and discovering unexpected little surprises in our gardens, these activities bring continuous excitement and added pleasure to our love of gardening. Having a friend to share the experience with you makes it even more special. Joellen and Holly are two such friends passionate about all things gardening.
