Welcome!

Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

Happy First Day of Fall!

Autumn has officially arrived! Gardens and gardeners alike are rejoicing throughout the land (or at least the parts of the land that are otherwise known as Central Texas).  Hope you are finding reasons to celebrate wherever you are.  Summers may be long, but life is short!

Happy, cooler autumn to you!! And all who perspire in the long, hot summers of Texas.

Indeed, Happy Fall to you, too, Deb! Love that photo of the ball moss. Funny that a relative of the much-revered Tillandsia is so maligned here.

Tina: We Texans have earned the right to enjoy cooler weather. Sweat equity you could call it!

Mary: Folks get confused about ball moss and think it harms our beloved live oak trees in some way. I think it is lovely and when I find any on the ground, tuck it into a trellis that is in the shade. Happy Fall!

Happy fall, way to my east! Your hazy sunset, the ball moss, tells me the summer is giving way there in a good way.

DryHeat: Happy Fall way to our West! Things here are winding down very nicely, summer to fall wise. I hope you got a little needed rain as well.
