It's been awhile since I created my blog, so wanted to post an update. As with all gardens in Austin, I'm in full heat distress. Although I'm out there everyday making sure everything gets watered and assess any fatalities.
I've got plans for a zen sand meditation area in my back corner, a raised fall veggie garden and initial thoughts of a (somewhat raised) pond. Lots going on in my mind and on paper.
I did manage to plant 4 japanese yews I got on sale at Home Depot as a start to the zen meditation garden. One of the bushes doesn't look so well - I think I'll pull it and take it back.
