I've been too busy lately for gardening, much less writing weblogs about gardening, but I wanted to take this opportunity to post a few pictures from Jenny of Rock Rose's lovely garden. While I've seen beautiful photos of it in the past, I didn't realize how extensive it is! I had a lovely afternoon with the other Austin garden bloggers. (The boots above belong to Lori of The Gardener of Good and Evil.)
Please enjoy these photo highlights:

Poppy Seed Pods
A gorgeous fountain empties into an amazing pool, surrounded by wildflowers.
A portico opens up to another room of the garden.
A beautiful reseeded columbine
I tend to prefer polite plants, willing to stay in their places and lacking in spikes and points, but I admired the way that Jenny uses poky plants in her garden, especially offset as they are against adobe walls.
Thank you again for hosting our get-together, Jenny! I loved getting to know your garden.
