Ga Ga over gardens!

My co-worker, Pat, and I spent the day on Saturday touring six beautiful gardens. The tour was hosted by the Victoria Master Gardeners Association. I bought one new plant at the Featured Plant Sale. I know, that is unbelievable--just one. I do have a list of plants to look for! I also took 145 photos! Don't worry, I won't be posting all of them!
I think these grapes are so pretty. The owners of this garden in old Victoria had chickens!
This plant is Bat-Faced Cuphea. It comes in several varieties with slightly different colors. I bought one of these at the Featured Plant Sale.

Gazing balls were popular in the gardens. I especially liked this one.

I also love the aged look of this statue.
I will share more later.
Ya'll Come Back!


  1. Beautiful pictures- I love the gazing ball!

  2. Nothing I love more than pictures of flowers! I can sit for hours looking at catalogs that sell bulbs and flowers! Can't wait to see the rest. Hugs, Loretta ps I don't mind if you post all 145 pictures :)

  3. I love to walk through other people's gardens and go home with lots of ideas! I wish our Master Gardeners had a tour like that.

  4. Beautiful photos and lots of nice textures shown here. Garden tours are a great for inspiration, aren't they?

  5. Oh, how I love me a garden tour! Like a kid at Xmas at one of those!
