Moved last year (2011) to what I hope is our retirement home. We have nearly an acre that needs lots of work...mostly goat heads and various other weeds. Last year we planted 18 crepe myrtles and 14 trees. Moved many of my plants from my old garden. Has been a struggle since we are in a drought with water rationing and too many days of 100+ temps last year.

My goal is to have lots of flowers for the hummingbirds and butterflies and create a great spot for birds to stopover. My husband is hoping to become a bee keeper so I am trying to add as blooming plants many as possible.

Trying to get composting going...need to find a source for coffee grounds. Have enjoyed sharing with neighbors and passer-bys.

I live in: United States

My zone is: 8a West Cen TX
