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.

This past weekend was spent at Summers Mill Retreat in Salado, Texas. Salado is an old town that is located about half an hour north of Austin. It has become an art and antique center--a perfect weekend get-away. Below is one of the cabins available to stay in.
This sweet little church had beautiful stained glass, and a German history.
There were many places to stop and sit and enjoy nature.
Although, it says it is an ostrich farm on the sign out front, I only saw one, who seemed rather lonely to me.
I found myself sitting in a rocking chair on the porch gazing up at the huge live oaks.
I thought this fence was whimsical and fun.
Our time at Summers Mill was over before we knew it. I felt I was just beginning to relax when it was time to leave, and I look forward to going again someday.
