Back in the swing of things
It’s been a long couple of weeks, sorry for going missing. The good news is that my dad’s surgery went well and he went home from the hospital on Friday. And I got to spend lots of time with my Nana and my mom.
I was only gone for 5 days, but I swear everything in the garden grew a foot! We ate our first zucchini from the garden last night, raw on a salad, and it was delicious. I hope you can see Kitty here behind the gorgeous coral bean, having her morning salad. This plant is in a kind of forgotten corner of the back yard, behind the compost heap. I know they freeze back in Austin, but I’m hoping it grows big and strong like the one at Barton Springs Nursery. So beautiful!
I am very excited about an informal tour of gardens in Crestview that is happening next weekend. I missed the big Mothers’ Day weekend tour in Austin that included Tom Spencer’s garden, and I am really disappointed about that. But I’m looking forward to meeting some folks in the neighborhood and nosing around their gardens.
