Through the Garden Gate: Monday, April 20th
I've been outside messing with the rocks again but I came in at the behest of the Executive Producer, who has big plans for us this evening, as indeed he does every Monday. Chuck will have the pleasure of our company for an hour ... then we'll get a few thrills from Jack Bauer. Before those menages a trois, though (oh, come on, you know all of you were thinking along those lines), here's a few images through the garden gate. After perusing my images, won't you head over to see Robin at Getting Grounded, who's going to join me from Austin each week to share the view from her garden gate. If you'd like to participate next Monday, I'd be delighted to see YOUR view!
The back patio
I 've encountered technical difficulties providing pictures of the usual views so I'm going to delete the X-boxes and will make another stab at it when I'm at my home computer.
What's that creeping through the bed? Why, it's Leon Hale, the only armadillo I'm happy to see in my garden. He's named after the inimitable Leon Hale, longtime columnist for the Houston Chronicle.
