I love this front porch at the stone yard..very Texas looking, it just needs an armadillo.
The garden center next door, which we drive by weekly, but have never stopped in before, has the kind of local plants you don't find at Lowe's or Home Depot. We only bought a creeping rosemary for the side yard and one of those lovely chartreuse green sweet potato vines. But found the Mexican Bird of Paradise, they just didn't have the ones with the yellow blooms that I want. The one with the yellow blooms is actually called Caesalpinia Mexicana and the blooms look like this.
We ordered these cute fountain grasses, called Little Bunny. They had already sold every one they had today.
They had these lovely wooden arches and a lot of statuary, but I only looked. I cannot bring home anymore things for the yard, that will eventually have to be moved. Hard to resist though.
