On our late May mini vacation in Austin one of the places we visited was The Natural Gardener. We went there to hear Dee Nash talk about kitchen gardens and her new book I posted about last week. After the talk we walked around the nursery. It had so many different areas and is full of great ideas you could use in your own garden. It is a big place and I took lots of photos : )
So let’s begin the tour…I think few words will be necessary.
I love the contrast of the gray green of the sage with the yellow and burgundy of the canna
Next we are heading to the vegetable gardens.
As we wandered through the nursery we came across several different waterfalls.
There were so many excellent examples of drought tolerant plants in every different texture and color.
Just past the vegetable garden is the herb garden laid out in two concentric circles with a focal point in the middle. Here is a link to help you create this pattern.
Every where you turn you see brightly color garden decorations and fun seating areas that are as much art as function!
Next we headed up a path through the wildflower meadow and natural area.
And then back down through donkeys, goats and chickens : ) I am still like a small child and always excited to see animals.
And you are probably wondering if I bought anything. I did buy a Topaz Grass Aloe…it was just so cool looking and of course I need another potted plant!
Thank you so much for joining me on our wander through The Natural Gardeners. I know I will be visiting it again next time I am in Austin.
