Been out of town- I took a trip with my parents and brother to East Texas where my family is from to attend to some family business. But I'm excited to share some wonderful photos , still garden related, from the trip. My first stop was in Dallas where I met up with my parents. Both of my parents are huge influences on my love for gardening and they have built a beautiful landscape at their Dallas home. This time of year is so amazing up there with all they have in bloom.
They have a beautiful rose bed, with a variety of colors. One of my favorites is Tamora, with a wonderful spicy scent.
They planted a small patch of Louisiana irises years ago along a creek behind their house. Well, that patch has grown just a bit and really puts on a showstopper when the purple and yellow irises bloom.
Their japanese maples are all gorgeous right now, contrasted against the green of all of the other plants.
