Our Little Garden Explorer

A very curious, playful puppy has been added to our family. Watching him explore his new home has been very entertaining to say the least. His name is Riley and he is a poodle mixed with terrier (we think). We adopted him from a foster home in San Antonio a couple of months ago.

The photos were taken about three weeks ago and now ...

the warm weather is waking up the garden and the yellow columbines are a welcoming touch of spring!

"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.”

Mini Rock Garden

Sometimes these little succulents can get lost in a garden bed and go unnoticed because of their size. I have found that creating a mini rock garden can help to get them noticed and add a little interest to my garden.
Santolina is planted next to the agave container. It is a shrubby ground cover that I keep shaped up for the area.

Mexican petunias are planted on the right and irises in the background. Lining the fence are Wax myrtles, which offer GREAT privacy.
I love to create little points of interest in my garden.
If you would like you could check out My Circle Mini Rock Gardens.
Happy gardening!
