Finally all flung out...



Here is the last little trickle of photos from the Garden Bloggers Spring Fling.

These photos were taken at the David/Peese garden that we toured on Saturday in the glorious Texas sunshine.

The garden was so rich and full of amazing sights, it's actually quite difficult to describe in words. Which is why they say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, enjoy these pictures and I'll let them speak for themselves.






We had big storms blow through here last night, with heavy rain and frightening winds waking me at 2:30 a.m. I spent the rest of the night 1/2 awake, worried that my tropical hanging baskets were being pelted and that the tall plumerias and the lime tree would have toppled over and be rolling around the patio. Luckily, it's just wet and cool outside and the plants all survived. I think the tropicals are wondering where in the world that cold weather came from, but they should be fine. It's supposed to clear up by noon and heat right up to 88 degrees this afternoon.

As the Spring Fling participants can now officially attest (with a cold dip to the 50s and hail Friday morning that schizophrenically morphed into upper 70s the same day), if you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute -- it'll change!
