>Been out of town- I took a trip with my parents and brother to East Texas where my family is from to attend to some family business. But I’m excited to share some wonderful photos , still garden related, from the trip. My first stop was in Dallas where I met up with my parents. Both of my parents are huge influences on my love for gardening and they have built a beautiful landscape at their Dallas home. This time of year is so amazing up there with all they have in bloom.
They have a beautiful rose bed, with a variety of colors. One of my favorites is Tamora, with a wonderful spicy scent.
They planted a small patch of Louisiana irises years ago along a creek behind their house. Well, that patch has grown just a bit and really puts on a showstopper when the purple and yellow irises bloom.
Join me for my next installment where I’ll take you back to my parent’s small hometowns,some of my their childhood places and family history.
