Starla and I visited Austin gardens last year in May as participants in the Garden Bloggers Fling.
The color of this purple house and the merriment in its surrounding gardens have remained in my mind.
‘La Morada” or the little purple house is a perfect backdrop for the enchanting gardens.
The narrow lot was made into a series of colorful garden rooms each with a theme.
I first learned of Lucinda through her book the The Herb Garden Cookbook. Garden herbs from around the world meld with edible flowers and other colorful flowers. Take a long look at the pots, the edge of the roof, the tiles on the door, and the zest she has built into this garden room.
Love the fern silhouette!
You knew there would be a bar and ourtdoor dining. This is a high-spirited place!
Viva Tequila! Cocktails, Cooking, and Other Agave Adventures, Lucinda’s latest cookbook must have been written while sitting in this part of her garden.
Th mosaic stepping stones in the garden suggest making the most of broken pieces-a reminder to enjoy life.
And that’s what gardens do, they remind us to enjoy life. Thank you Lucinda Hutson for sharing yours.
