My husband and I are entering our gardening work from Austin,Tx. He IS the creator and I am the "go-to gal". I do have my fair share of creating but mainly pots. Please enjoy and tell us what you think. Here are pictures of veggie and herb gardens, and just some different ladscaping around. Some of the pictures are of the begining of spring, and then now summer time.

wow, that's so beautiful!  I love the containers you guys have done.  I only wish I had property (and TX's warm weather!) to have a garden like that! (I live in an apt  Tongue)

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.

Well you have my vote!!! I know this post is for best garden but, both home and garden are beautiful! I love the copper eaves (both the shiny ones and the verdigris ones) and the rocks along the bottom of the house! Greenhouse...bubbler fountain... there is a big puddle of drool on my desk! Awesome!

All of your pictures are so beautiful!  You've got my vote too!  I love the picture of the morning glory with the light shining through the center.  Also the caterpillar on the fennel is awesome!  Great pictures & great work!   Smiley

Thank you so much guys.....I LUV being outside and playing in the dirt.....of coarse it IS our pasttime fun.
MissConduct you can pay me if you wanna come see it! I don't know anyone who is willing to pay for seeing some herbs and flowerz.
 We have a seed buying obsession mainly of wildflowerz...hence the name~ teehee. Most of the stuff is from a seed packets, but some of the cactus and agave's are bought. The greenhouse is for the stuff that needs to be nursed back to health or stuff that won't live in our heat in the summer and the stuff that can't take our slightly cold winters. Mainly tropicals. Since I'm the one whom likes to give things a chance....most of the greenhouse is filled with stuff that needs a little luv and helping hand. I will be selling 4in herbs at the market sometimes so if your in the area come visit and buy some herbs, or whatever I have at the time!~

I can't wait for the voting polls to open...SO many green thumbs..I'm in heaven. I only wish I had some friends that shared my same passion for the outdoors near me... Embarrassed anyone wanna move in?....JK ~already have 2 friends with 2 dogs living here from Portland so its a full house.
