It took all of Easter weekend but we finished building raised beds and planting the Madrone Nursery plants. Plus the herbs and tomatoes. And the transplants of West Texas Mist Flower (Eupatorium greggii) and five Texas Betony (Stachys coccinea)...you get the idea.
By the time we finished, we were sore, ant-bitten and tired. But happy. Happier still to sit on the porch with smoked oysters and sparkling wine. A good start to summer beauty.
