Inspiration

One of the walled gardens which inspired my humble kitchen garden. This shot was taken peaking from over a wall of balusters at the Dallas Arboretum.

Garden Touring: Women's Garden fountain

A brief video featuring one of the fountains in the Women's Garden, one of the gardens at the Dallas Arboretum.

FYI: this video doesn't seem to work on an iPhone, even though it was posted with my iPhone. Technology is so fun. Maybe non-Apple devices will have more luck.

Peaking into the kitchen garden

It really is a delight to be able to harvest ingredients from your own garden, especially right before dinner. I'm feeling so Alice Waters right now.

BTW, that empty pot really is a working fountain. Really. I'll be revisiting this DIY container fountain later in the season. Maybe a stronger pump, planting it out or something completely different.

From garden to table

Home-grown tomato salad with dinner tonight. We all enjoyed the tomatoes and basil fresh from the garden, even he kiddo.
