Xeric and stylish gardening in San Antonio, Texas

Wide shot – June 2014


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.


  1. Whew!!!! just finished a wideshot look of my yard…..tried to get in the major planting areas I am dealing with this year….Have a great week everyone!!! If my attempt at a link doesn’t work, check out my blog Hillcountryhick.com……still working on it!!!

    • Go M, go! You rock! -xericstyle

  2. Here’s my post with wide shots for this month. Thanks again for hosting this, Heather!

  3. Maria: Sorry, I can’t seem to figure out how to comment directly on your blog but wanted to say your spaces are looking great and I can’t wait to see how they fare month to month as you get your olive grove up and running. Good to have you here!

    • Hi TexasDeb…It’s probably me. I updated my blog and messed up some settings. I keep forgetting to ask hubby to check everything for me..maybe I can get him to do it this week.

    • I agree! Thx, M! -xericstyle

  4. The fresh greens of your front garden (combined with the puffy white clouds) make it look as though you got some rain – was that the case? Thanks for hosting, Heather. Here’s my post: http://krispgarden.blogspot.com/2014/06/wide-shots-june-2014.html

    • You are absolutely right, Kris! We did :) Thanks for being here :) -xericstyle

  5. Happy to be posting along with everyone else this month!
    Here’s my wide shot…..

    • Thank you so much for participating! yay!!!! -xericstyle

    Thanks for hosting this. I love the long shots of gardens. When someone only posts a closeup of a flower bloom, while lovely, it is such a let down…..for me anyway. I want to see how and where everything lives!!


    • Thank you, Debra! I totally agree! I like the big pic….-xericstyle

  7. Your garden is looking good.
    I’m late…as usual. But, here’s my wide shot, for this month.

    • Right on, Linda! Thanks for participating. :) -xericstyle

  8. What a great idea! Your garden looks like our June rains made it happy! I just saw the meme, but decided to participate! I’m at http://123thgm.blogspot.com/2014/06/wide-view-end-of-month-and-all-that.html

    Thanks for hosting!

  9. Finally have my post up…I love the texture of your front garden and the shade that brings a nice peaceful feeling to it.
