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.

Something Blue

Something old, something new....
something borrowed.....

Ok.  So not literally blue.  At least not this go round.  "Something Blue" is rather the name for a new feature here on Austin Agrodolce.

I've consistently enjoyed several blogs that regularly feature photos with little to no verbiage attached.  I thought I'd give it a try here occasionally, sharing a photo without much if any exposition.

Introducing........ Something Blue.

I like the photo--what is the vase placed on? It looks like a tablecloth, with spills of water underneath the vase and at the upper right hand corner of the photo.

Tina, I'm glad you like it - thanks so much for commenting.

To get this shot I placed the thistles on a clear glass cake plate atop a white surface. All that watery effect is the result of light shifting around coming through the glass.
