  1. Great pictures! Love the pots full of veggies and flowers.

    Apparently, a really cool garden blogger purchased all the frogfruit at Shades of Green nursery;) I was informed by an employee there that you are one of his favorite customers.

  2. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I was there just a day or so after you getting stuff for work and he told me about y’alls conversation and called you “so nice and open-minded” – AWE! Small world! I’d love to have you over some time, it would be wonderful to meet you and Shirley both!!!!! Maybe in May when things are grown back around here y’all can come over for lunch or tea? A San Antonio blogger get together. I’d like that! you? Shirley? -xericstyle

  3. A meet and greet would be fun. I would love to see your yard. I’m so inspired by your posts.

    PS I told him that you also raise chickens. Yes, you do it all:)

    • That means so much – thank you Steph – I feel the same. It is a plan then – yay! Can’t wait! -xericstyle

  4. Like you, I really enjoyed the edible lovelies mixed in with other plants like agave and tulips on my recent visit SABT. I’ll have a few pics soon, hopefully in a post tomorrow.

    • They looked so wonderful and well taken care of, didn’t they?! Simply amazing. You just know they must have a wonderful team working there tending to everything impeccably! I look forward to seeing the gardens through your eyes. And seeing your pictures which I know will be a million times better than mine!!! – xericstyle
