Today's photos are from Bonnie Pancoast, who lives in Pennsylvania (see links to her garden HERE), but recently visited Texas. She says, "On August 13th of this year I had the pleasure of visiting Austin's Zilker Botanical Garden. Because the temperature had been hovering around 100 degrees for about a week I thought I would see only green and browning vegetation, but still I had hope. I was not disappointed. Because of the water cycling thoughtout the gardens and mature trees protecting the undergrowth, what I experienced was an oasis in the Texas heat." So nice, Bonnie--great close-ups! Nothing looks at all wilty....in fact that lizard looks cool as a cucumber. Jusdging from the website, we need LOTS more photos--that place looks fascinating!
