Whoever said "bloom where you are planted" must not have lived in Texas. Last Wednesday evening we had the worst hail and wind storm (at least in my lifetime) ever to move through the Austin area. The damage estimates are still rolling in. Not a Katrina-sized event, that was epic, Old Testatment proportions surely, but this unnamed storm was big enough and bad enough for me.Here we are 6 days later and the temperatures have climbed past the mid 90s for the second day in a row. Blooming in Central Texas is not for the faint of heart, that's for sure.

That said, we do have some lovely sights to behold (especially if you get out into the garden early, before the sun is up very high). We have some very determined bloomers. A reminder that beautiful doesn't necessarily mean fragile.....
