Wow, months and months of no rain here in TX. It has finally arrived and everything is miraculously growing with God's special rain. People can water all they want with a hose for months but it never gives the results as heavenly rain.

Our lives are being transformed in front of our eyes as we have had two weeks of periodic rain. It is a refreshing feeling. Not to mention the big drop in temp. We were over 55 days of three digit weather here. It was so unbearable at times. Our ACs weren't even able to cool us down at times.

The garden is so happy and so are all those critters who frequent my garden.

I divided the elephant ears, crinums, and other planst with the help of two friends who I invited over. They are wanting to start their own gardens.


I've decided to start up a group of women who like to garden. I was thinking if we all grow a fruit bearing tree or shrub we could all share. I had a grapefruit tree in a huge pot and it was time for it to find a home. My backyard has too many tall trees. It probably wouldn't have a chance.

Hopefully, this weekend if the sun comes out, I will transplant my fig tree in the ground, finally. I'm excited that fall is here. We can all finally come out of our homes and enjoy the outdoors. It's like the people from the north who get snowed in. We get heated-in. Gosh, this summer was a scortcher.

Thank God fall has finally arrived and in full force I must say.

"Did you know? . . . The Cashew nut grows on a large tree, Its pod is at the end of a juicy fruit, encased in a softer pod. When the pod is roasted, the nut is removed and ready to eat."

"I'm sure what this is.  It's not a hibiscus for it doesn't flower. It is more like a crouton. The leaves are the beauty."

Surviving Winter '14

"Thankfully, winter was warm for us this year. We had only a few days in the 50's for the high, and no lower that 40 for low, so the plants fared well."
