My yard is always a work in progress trying to figure out what will survive our weather.
It's a regular suburban size lot filled with hard to dig clay and 5 large Oak trees.
I don't have any full sun, but in Texas that's sometimes a good thing.
I need to add more Native & Xeriscape plants since our summers are hot, hot, hot and we're usually in a drought.
Love growing peppers and herbs, especially basil.
I like to grow plants that will attract beneficial insects, butterflies and hummers.
Favorite thing to do while having my morning coffee is to watch the birds at the feeders.
This year (2014) I'm trying a cutting garden in one of my raised beds. Love pretty vases filled with pretty flowers.
