2012 has been full of surprises, not all of them good. My life has been thrown off track, but I’m on my way back. The garden has had to take care of itself these past few months, but I must say it has done a good job of it. The blog was due for a new header, so the gnomes of Heidelberg, Germany have joined us. The big garden news is the addition of 1600 gallons worth of rain barrels from Texas Metal Cisterns, that will be an upcoming post for sure.
After a lot of internal debate I decided to go ahead and sign-up for the 5th annual Garden Bloggers Fling. This year it will be in Asheville, NC. I am super excited to see Biltmore.
Today is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and I am planning on posting the first ever pictures of my front yard flowers. I completely re-landscaped the front yard in the fall, using mostly native plants. Several of them are in bloom now and will have the honor of being featured in the first 2012 Houston Garden Girl’s bloom day post. I’m so excited!
I’m convinced that 2012 can only get better from here. Happy gardening everyone!
