oooh, oooh, oooh...






Don't you just love it when it hits you, and you have an epiphany? I had a delightful stroll through Barton Springs Nursery this afternoon, looking for a few more plants for the
"Big Bed". I wanted to put a Texas Sotol on the left side, but was afraid I didn't have the space for it. I bought it anyway. I am the queen of squeezing too much into a bed (not a good thing). Then as I was putting the Blackfoot daisies, Wedelia and the Sotol into my trunk, I realized that the Sotol is the perfect solution for a center focal point in front of the window box. I was looking for something lower growing, but because the Sotol is so fine, it won't obstruct the view and will make a nice specimen plant for the middle where I still had a hole. Blackfoot daisies in front of it, and voila! Ha. I get so smug when I figure something out BEFORE I put it into the wrong spot!!!

(However, I am much LESS smug about the fact that I can't figure out how to rotate this photo, so for now, you'll just have to turn your heads because I'm rushing out the door!!!)

Hi Diana, thanks for visiting my blog. I noticed that you were part of that party held in Austin by several garden bloggers that I *know*. It's nice to put a face to your name too.

The re-planting of your big bed is coming along nicely I see. Ephipany's are good!!!

BTW I hope that you can get some of your beloved the Netherlands back through my blog. You're very much welcome to visit Bliss to your heart's content!

Your sotol will be a terrific focal point. Good idea.

Our garden party was so fun! It was great to meet these new friends in person. I will certainly enjoy having a piece of Holland through your blog!
