A journal of a gardener in Round Rock, Texas learning how to deal with clay and limestone "soil" and the heat! Whew! But also the joy that comes from getting out in the garden and enjoying nature and family.

Hello! I thought to start, I would show you what is blooming in my garden right now. Of course we have to start with a morning glory!
I am not a very good photographer, but can you make out the bumble bee in the Cinderella pumpkin blossom?
The hydrangea the kids got me for Mother's Day last year is doing well. The three that I bought seven years ago from a nursery, are toast.
The gardenias were beautiful this year. I'm not sure why, but I have noticed that everyone's seemed to be very prolific and gorgeous. After this round of blooms, they will bloom a couple more times before frost.
