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.

Block Party, Blooms, and Hail Storms
We had a neighborhood block party to celebrate the end of school, the beginning of summer, and well, just having an excuse to drag out the grills, block off the cul-de-sac and eat, laugh, and play.
Can you see Frisky's tail and paw? He's always trying to get in the picture. What a ham!
I can't remember if this Daylily is Stella de Oro. I love the lemony yellow color.
Can you see the interesting little red and black insect on the Chamomile?
I love the cool blue green of sage.
The front walkway was littered with leaves and small branches the morning after a hail storm slammed through. It was moving so fast, I thought it was going to go right over us. Boy, was I wrong! Thankfully we didn't have any major damage, but will have to have the cars repaired for hail damage.
