Has it Been Almost a Year?Last year, I added a few more natives to the garden, like the weeping youpon holly. I had to ditch the cuphea, because the cat liked to eat it. The tree is beginning to get too big for its container. I'm afraid I will have to put it in the ground. I'm not sure how well it will survive the transplant.

Shades of GreenWe are almost in the middle of July. My spring flowers seem to have gone, and the verbena are not blooming - but I've got multiple shades of green.

Too Many PlantsA small garden with a lot of plants is a very good thing if all you want to do is water it and enjoy it, but the plants have taken over and I'm not even having to weed like I once did. What is a girl to do without garden chores. I suppose there is always the digging up of the cuphea. It's about toast.

Oh What a Difference a Month MakesThe weather is getting hotter, and the plants are finally starting to fill in. I almost don't have room for any more plants - but you know I will find a way. Here's how it looks this month.

Trials and TribulationsVacation is over, and I didn't miss the bottlebrush bloom! I did have several of the branches of my native wildflower fall off in my hands practically. I'm blaming that on the snail!

It's almost like starting overSix months later and it's almost like starting over. Very few of my "tender perennials" made it through the exceptionally cold winter (well for South Texas that is), so each weekend I've been buying new plants, hoping to have a real "xeriscape cottage garden" in the little space I have. Let's see where next month's picture brings us!

Last Years InvestmentI rented this place because it actually had a yard. Well, a yard if you call some dirt by the fence. It is approximately 7 1/2 feet by 2 feet. Most of last years plantings were still in the containers. Here's how it looked before the extreme drought and then exteme cold got to the plants. My cat, Trouble, is in the foreground. Some of the plants that didn't make it:
o Coral Pea Vine
o Two Porterweeds
o The Finger-like succulent in the back
o The Hamelia
