graham-pondtableWe purchased our Austin home in 1996; two years later a work transfer took us away from Austin until 2008 – a 10 years absence.  Finally settled back in Austin we could get to work transforming our builder’s yard into the garden of our dreams, not an easy task for “transplanted gardeners”.

For a Christmas gift my husband and adult children rebuilt my vegetable garden, thank you Santa!  The garden below our landscaped yard is a raised-bed system employing square-foot gardening techniques and fenced to keep the rabbits and deer from munching the vegetables.  I grew up in a gardening family and just love to clip herbs to add to my gourmet dishes.  It’s such a pleasure to delight in the flavor of a ripe tomato or sugar snap pea fresh from the vegetable garden, to pick a luscious peach, to make lemonade from our Meyers lemons or to enjoy a cup of morning coffee surrounded by glorious nature!

Our yard is a Wildlife Certified Habitat and pleasures us with a great frog chorus on summer nights from our pond.  We hope you will enjoy visiting our garden during your tour.
