Austin City Limits and Beyond!

 While speaking at the Lake Austin Spa Resort, one of my biggest treats and greatest surprises was getting to know organic gardening guru, Trisha Shirey – the Director of Flora and Fauna at the Resort.

 We were like two organically grown peas in a pod, trudging off to collect plants for our hands-on container planting demonstration.  Our first stop – the kitschy/clever little garden store called Sunshine Nursery.

  Garden Art!

 Displays for inspiration.

 Our next stop was a container gardener’s mecca – look at those colors!

 Look at all these options! And the funky black containers

 At the Natural Gardener

 I absolutely loved these guys – they followed me all over the nursery.

 Beautiful gardens throughout the grounds

 I’ve never seen Euphorbia so large.

 An exact replica of Willi Nelson’s guitar

My momma always said that country music guitar playing would grow on me.
