Today’s photo is from Philip Leveridge in Austin, Texas. Philip is a garden designer, and his home garden is called East Side Patch. Of this picture, he says, “I like combining contrasting textures in my garden, and Mexican feather grass (Stipa tenuissima, USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11) paired with soft leaf yucca (Yucca recurvifolia, Zones 7-9) really hits the spot. My pathways are lined with feather grass which, as the name implies, moves on the slightest of breezes, a welcome attribute here in central Texas. Here is a link to it in motion.” Thanks, Philip, for sharing! LOVE the video. We’ll be featuring a couple more photos from East Side Patch in the next couple of days. In the meantime, check out Philip’s blog here.
