Wednesday Vignettes - From the 2018 Austin Fling

I went to my first garden blogger Fling this year, in Austin, TX. There were so many gardens to see and great people to meet! I had a lot of fun! Here are just a few of the pictures I took, all from Day 3's gardens...
So many leaves in the shade

Agave ovatifolia was everywhere, usually with great impact

Lovely spot of light in a semi-shady garden

More leaves!

All the trees made for dramatic back drops

It was warm the third day - even the plants thought it was pool weather!
I learned so much, and got so much inspiration for my own garden, I can't wait to get back out there. I'm also looking forward to seeing everyone else's posts on these gardens! And a huge thank you to the planning team and sponsors for making this fling a great experience!
