Newest Additions

Please welcome the newest additions to my flower family! All bee and butterfly pollinator plants. I couldn’t help but be(e) drawn to the purple flowers in particular (although I did allow the hubby one choice 😉). To me it is important to find plants that are a source of food for bees. They help toContinue reading “Newest Additions”

Texan Wildflowers

Before I moved here, images of tumbleweed blowing in the streets and ranches with cows used to fill my head when I thought of Texas. While cow-filled ranches are certainly a common sight here, what I didn’t expect to see was greenery and lots of wildflowers.

This year, they sprouted like rocket ships! I’m not sure whether we did something differently or myContinue reading “My, How They Grow Up so Fast!”

Time of the Year for Seedlings 🌱

Last year my husband and I first tried our hand at growing plants. We started our seedlings in March, which if you live in Texas, is way too late.
