They came to visit today and we had fun looking around, sorry I didn't take more pictures, I guess I was too busy talking plants.

Thank you for the tour, Josephine. And for all those plants you sent home with me. I'll take pics when I get them all planted.

I admire your tremendous knowledge of plants and also how you are such an encourager.

i just want to chime in and say, Yes to the encourager part. Josephine takes a very patient and loving approach to encouraging others. I appreciate that, too. Beautiful border, BTW. Cherry sage, fall aster and heath aster and one cowpen daisy?

Thank you Marty, it is my love of people and Texas native plants that makes me want to spread them everywhere.
You were right about the border, and yes that is a cowpen daisy.
Here is a larger view of the area.

frostweed - what a beautiful piece of property...so much color and texture. It reminds me of cottage gardens in England. Just great!

Thank you Stephanie and Morgan, I try to make it as lush as possible and not desert like, as so many other native plant landscapes tend to look.
