A whimsical whirligig
These pink poppies by the entrance are attention grabbers every spring
Foxglove, iris, columbine on the east side of the check out building. Now that I see these growing here, I'll try them as annuals next year.
More columbine, love the colors on these
Cheerful container planting for spring
This Giant Hesperaloe is blooming in front of the adobe arcada
Agave Ovatifolia, winecup, poppies, lambs ear in front of the adobe wall. There are at least two of these in the gardens, the leaf pattern mimics roses. On this trip I purchased winecup to add to my own garden.
Even the petunias stand out here!
Across the courtyard - spiderwort, fan palm, ornamental grass in a container
Mexican Honeysuckle in the blue adobe courtyard
Bring your lunch and picnic in the bluebonnets by the gazebo
Or picnic near the greenhouse
I love the low border and the garden plantings at the greenhouse garden
Beautiful Yucca Rostrata by the hacienda
Just in case you wondered, I purchased the mislabeled grasses at another garden center and not here at The Antique Rose Emporium.
One last look at the gazebo before I head out to finish my errands for the day.
I'll be back to check on the ever-changing landscapes at ARE soon.
Note: The Antique Rose Emporium closed its San Antonio location in 2012.
