Walking around outside last weekend was AMAZING. High 80s to low 90s is Heaven for me. The foliage agrees.
Gulf Fritillary butterfly appears to be landing on Ginger the Corgi. Note how the slender lobe passionvine (Passiflora tenuiloba) appears to be taking off in flight with the butterfly! Lerve. 😍
Purple Heart in a turquoise pot sparkles in the shade. (Still trying figure something else to add…any ideas??)
And our newest additions to the garden: An Agave ovatifolia ‘Vanzie’ and two Agave parryi var. truncata. Hill Country Water Gardens had a sale where you could buy any two plants and get the 3rd free! (We also scored a pup in the parryi pot)
Luckily it’s not those devilish little agave snout weevils. I let the roots kinda dry out and then replanted thanks to the suggestions of a fellow Austin gardener who blogs at Rock Rose. Drainage, drainage,drainage.
Hopefully it returns! I’ll keep you updated. Thanks to Pam over at Digging for hosting this super fun gardening meme!
