Gardens and Succulents!

Ever since I posted those pictures by Alex I’ve been reluctant to post anything else… it seeemed to me that nothing would top those pictures as far as our house was concerned. Anyway, there hasn’t been much going on either.

But here I am again!~ I have created a new page called “Glamour Shots” where Alex’s photos will have a permanent home and I am going to get this blog moving again.

Exciting news is that we are going to be on this fall’s AIA Homes Tour! More to follow on that later.

This upcoming event has finally kicked Scott and me into some action, especially regarding the landscaping. This is the landscaping plan that we are working with and Colleen from Red Wheelbarrow will help us implement it.


I’ve also ordered a tray of 20 mixed succulents from Annie Appleseed in Pleasant Hill, CA. These will give you an idea of what they will look like. Like candy!


Today Scott and I went out to Hill Country Water Gardens and purchased the water pump. They have several beautiful ponds set up with lots of great water plants and koi and goldfish as well. If you are thinking of putting in a water feature it is well worth a trip up to Cedar Park.

Our big decision is whether to have a living pond (w/ water lilies and goldfish) or a fountain that will feature the water and water movement as the star attraction.

I will post some pics of the ponds later.

Lastly, here’s just a random (and precious!) picture of Rocket’s damp little nose. It wouldn’t be out of place in that succulent garden I think.
