Through the Garden Gate: One Last Look at 2011



I'm not sorry to see the end of 2011, a year that brought extremes of both temperature and drought to my corner of Katy.  The Head Gardener and I were frequently at our wits' end here at Wit's End.  Thankfully, the last month of the year brought both rain and blessedly cooler temperatures to south central Texas, refreshing both gardens and gardeners.


The HG and I count ourselves not just fortunate but blessed by the friendship, support and camaraderie of our fellow gardeners, around Texas, across the country and throughout the world.   We are grateful for all y'all did to help us get through this often hellatious year.  2012 is dawning and with it, new hope for both gardens and gardeners.  May it be a year of bountiful blooms, not just in the garden but in your hearts, minds and lives.   


Happy New Year, y'all!

Between you and Dee of "Red Dirt Ramblings," I have vowed never again to complain about the heat and humidity of an Illinois summer. I hope 2012 brings better times in your garden, Cindy. Happy New Year!
