Points of View...

August in Texas.  That means, it's hot and it's dry.  

It's funny.  You plant things and tend them, day after day.  You don't always remember just how far you've come.  Sometimes, you just have to sit down and take time to SEE the garden.

The view from those chairs above, really has changed this year.

Here it is in April.  New bed, new plants....just starting out.

And, here it is now.  Not much blooming, but it has grown.

Looking to the right, in April.

Looking to the right now.

The bed along the fence, April.

And, now.

Front fence bed, April.

Front fence bed, now.

When I look at it from that point of view, I can see that there really has been some progress. 

A constant battle to keep things going, in the heat.  But, worth it, after all.

Then, there are these guys.  Do they look like they're conspiring, to you?  Are they plotting what to chomp next?  Another garden battle, to fight.

But, we keep on trying to co-exist.  Eilean brings her babies here, everyday.  The bucket is for the babies.  Even though they're losing their spots, they still can't reach the water in the birdbath.

Viewing things from this point....things are pretty fine.

Have a great weekend.

Happy Gardening...



  1. It's always fun to see before and afters. Things are growing well in your gardens, despite the heat and the hungry deer.

  2. Hi Linda,

    Ah yes, the battle with wildlife never ends. It is bittersweet. I love the aspect of creating a garden where nature flourishes yet they destroy it!

    Your garden has sure progressed a lot. I have always admired your fence. It is attractive and functional!
    Your clay pots decor is fun! Love it.

  3. You've made wonderful points of view! Best of all, you recognize how important they are.
