Most of us are at home this week and for the next coming weeks.
If you’re itching to walk through a garden, why not take a tour of ours through the eyes of Starla, our photographer who took these pictures last week.
New decomposed granite walkway flanked by beds of Canyon Creek Abelia, Hamelim Dwarf Fountain Grass, and Texas Sage, “Compactum” (Texas Ranger). Read a full description of this new memorial garden here.
Veggie beds full of turnips (mostly gone), mustard greens (lots), collards (gone), carrots, and onions. Meanwhile Jim, is nursing 6″ pots of tomatoes and peppers for the garden.
Pollination of a blackberry blossom
The color wheel garden with a pretty apricot iris. Jim has repotted 40 zinnias and has 20 more to repot for the color wheel.
Redbud tree in bloom
The rain garden, our unsung hero! It has been channeling rain from our full rain cisterns to this sunken garden.
