Flashback - Then and Now

As we prepare for spring it is a great time to flashback and look at the evolution of the garden over the past almost 6 years. Our garden has evolved into an inspiration for neighbors and friends who ask us for help in building their own gardens. Paul plans to build a different trellis for the sweet autumn clematis across the archway so it does not get so unruly. We also talked about building a courtyard and an arched doorway that would enclose the front of the house. The courtyard would be very unique to this area as it is truly Californian. I love the mystery of a courtyard with a big beautiful garden gate which leaves you to wonder what is growing behind it. Do you think that would go over in Texas?
