Pictures and future additions

I was cruising around in the yard the other day and took some pictures, including some pictures of things I hope to add to my etsy store in the future. I uploaded the pictures to my flickr account after I took them, but I shall present them to you now. :)

Here is Gomphrena 'Strawberry Fields'. It's a globe Amaranth, and a native of the south Texas and Mexico. What I love about it is that it's easy to grow, drought tolerant, and absolutely stunning. It gets about a height of about 20-24". I will be offering seeds, hopefully, in a few weeks.



Another thing I took a picture of is my frog cave. I made this as a 'what can you do with this?' from my guy out of hypertufa. I have it sitting in the back of one of my flower beds, with the inside dug out and filled with a comfy bed of moist sand. Frogs (and the occasional garden snake!) are often holed up in it in the hottest summer months. I'll probably make a few of these and post them on etsy to see if anyone is interested in a little garden whimsy.

While I'm not even interested in plants, I thought I'd say hi. This is the second time I've visited your blog... just so you know.

I love the frog cave. I've never heard of such a thing. It's a great idea.
