Garden Abundance & Beauty

Garden Abundance & Beauty

Our garden and orchards are abounding in beauty, growth and activity. They are such fun places to be! Thanks to our permaculture gardener Paige Dunlap for all her sweet nurturing of our soil, plants and flowers. Come, let us show you around ...

This African Blue Basil took us by surprise. We didn't know it could grow so large! I guess everything really is bigger in Texas!

Look, it's even as tall as Bill ...

Speaking of Bill - our Butterfly Whisperer is back in action! Check out this great shot he managed to capture of this gorgeous giant Swallowtail Butterfly.

Here's our friend Perry the Praying Mantis caught at morning prayers!

Look at these delightful bright yellow Zinnias hiding underneath our Tulsi plants ...

"Zinnia Linearis is such an uplifting plant. I love it." - Paige, The Cedars Ranch gardener

Wishing you all an uplifting and beautiful week!

Marilyn and Bill.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself
and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
