It's all there in the title photo-the rocks, the oaks, and the deer in my backyard. Those are just a few of the gardening challenges here on the north side of San Antonio. Like the game rock-paper-scissors we're never quite sure which will prevail. We’ve made a lot of progress improving our landscape in the past three years, yet there is still much to do.
There is also much to share. While researching ideas for our own landscape, I found gardening blogs to be an excellent resource. Most of the bloggers I follow are in Austin and other cities. While there are many similarities in plants and gardening styles, San Antonio has a lot to offer too. That's where this blog comes in. In addition to sharing progress in my own yard, I will also highlight gardens, gardeners, and garden events in and around this beautiful city of San Antonio. I'll post interesting things I see along the way as well.
We have a lot of visitors to the yard each week and I'll share those photos too. This guy recently dropped by to check out the menu.
|Good evening, a table next to the roses please!|
This first post wouldn't be complete without acknowledging Pam Penick at Digging. Thank you Pam for your inspiring blog and the enthusiasm with which you support garden bloggers everywhere! Pam has declared October "Support Your Independent Nursery" month so my first series of posts will focus on local garden centers.
