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.

No sister…YOU amaze me! -xericstyle
Heather, you are so sweet, and I’m more than happy to have been a mentor to you. But at this point you are inspiring me and so many other avid gardeners in Texas and beyond. Thank you for welcoming me into your garden, and keep on keeping on with your awesome blog and your xericstyle gardening! BTW, you’re welcome to come visit me in Austin anytime. :-)
I’ve been teasing Pam in the comments section about how “meta” it is to be reading about other blogger’s gardens, bloggers that I already read, only now through the filter of her posts on them. Did your garden spaces look different in any way to you once you saw them in her posted photos?
It sounds like a fun and funny time – I’m glad you all shared it with the rest of us out here in Reader Land. Between a spot on Digging and your television stint this has been quite a year!
I saw Pam’s tour of you garden a few days back and it so beautiful! It felt calm, flowing and very inviting! I loved the orange theme carried thru and all the little artistic details. Pam is a very special person, with her encouragement I was finally able to get my blog off the ground earlier this year. I look forward to seeing more of your garden : )
I think it’s great how you’re showing that one can have a very attractive landscape with little or no supplemental water and that your garden is getting acknowledgment so that many folks can learn. My steps in that direction are mostly out of necessity. Incidentally, the firecracker fern in that particular pot is a perfect pairing!
