Plant Shopping

Tomorrow I am heading up to Canyon with Danny and Nancy to go to Canyon’s Edge Plants to see what additional plants I can find for the yard. What is cool about this place is that have Panhandle natives. For those not familiar with this area, the High Plains of the Texas Panhandle (Llano Estacado) is fairly inhospitable — cold winters (for TX), hot summers, low rainfall (semi-arid), and high winds. So the true Panhandle natives are pretty tough. I have downloaded their spring sale list and have some things on my “wish list” that I hope they still have in stock. I will report back on that next week.

Back in April, Danny and I hired a big white van to go down to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center  Spring Sale, where I did very well rounding up things on my list (more on how the newbie transplants are doing another time) and then filled up the rest of the van with vegan products and decent beer as they are in limited supply here in Lovely Lubbock. Anyway, I love the LBJ Wildflower Center, and amusingly Danny and I were treated as heroes for coming all the way down from Lubbock. The wildflowers along the way (especially on TX-71) were absolutely stunning, so it would have been worth the trip anyway.
