I love gardening, it is my escape and therapy …but a northerner trying to make a garden in Texas has been frustrating . The long warm season, the very hot summers and all kinds of other issues have turned my green thumb very brown. I do go “home” at least once a year, sometimes more, and when I do I so enjoy the spring season in the NE. My BFF in NY..and her husband, I know he does a lot of the work too, have the most beautiful gardens. When I visited last summer I captured many photos but this is one of my favorite.
