Please join me in posting a wide shot of your garden the first of every month, or anytime you get to it in the month. It is my hope, that this exercise will assist us all both in the appreciation of our gardens as they grow and change, and in growing and learning ourselves to recognize changes we may want to make.

Mexican Flame Vine and Chickens…

One of the things they DON’T eat, making it the perfect chicken-yard vine.  Much trial and error…

Orange!

It’s a party up in here!

Neglected Mexican Plum…

…Blooming its head off!!!
I planted this last fall in a berm and gave it no supplemental water all last summer…thought maybe it would suffer, but it has proven to be tough as nails, and is therefore perfect for my  garden!

My garden through Pam Penick’s, eyes…

I feel so lucky to be blessed with mentors in my life. One of my mentors, Pam Penick, came to my garden last week with a group of amazing garden bloggers from Austin (Diana, Lori, Cat, and Jenny), and locals Melody and her lovely GVST crew. IT – WAS – SUR – REAL. BUT…back to Pam…THE Pam Penick… in MY garden. The woman I have learned so much from, and owe so much to, here. Whoa.

It was an amazing visit where so many things came full circle for me. I am still processing it, actually. oh, and I got to ask her advice on specific questions too! BONUS!

Here is Pam’s post

Life is Good.

This living fence got ZERO water from me this year. ZERO. I treat my little ollie bushes just like my Texas sage.

Please excuse my smaller pictures – WordPress updated on my machine, and I need to figure out how to post larger pictures. In the meantime, if you click a picture, you can view it full-size.
