This past holiday weekend was very busy for me in the garden. Saturday I made it out to the Zilker Gardens for the Succulent show and sale. Saw lots of very interesting and colorful succulents and bought me a few to neatly arrange in a container. I've been reading the book that Pam at Digging reviewed on Succulents - it's given me lots of ideas.
Sunday morning garden time was time spent maintaining, planting some miscellaneous this and thats, moving a few things that just weren't in the right place. I planted the bamboo that I bought at the bamboo festival a couple weeks ago. It's very small now - but it will grow fast. I've got 4 Golden Goddess Bamboo plants planted along my fence - hoping that real soon it will soften the fence line and add interest.
And finally, on my trek through Home Depot, I bought a beautiful bougainvillea. I admit that I've NEVER been able to keep a bougainvillea alive..... I'm very very committed to really making this one a go! I'll keep my blog updated with my promise to the bougainvillea!
