Trip to Jims

Hello All, I took the much awaited trip to Jim's place on Friday evening. Both Jim and Pat are wonderful hosts. I had a great evening, walking thru the pathways looking at the lovely garden, talking about plants and learning so much. I took some pictures to share with all of you. I got several plants from Jim and my Bat face cuphea magically transformed overnight into a wonderful healthy plant (he gave me a new one!! ) I chatted with Pat over a nice snack watching the garden from inside, I have the picture framed in my mind.

Here is a link to my picasaweb. Please post if you are not able to get to them, I will upload via photobucket.

You lucky girl! I keep saying the next time I goes to my son's in Houston, that I will plan to visit them.

I will have to get a GPS or I will never find my way back and forth.

Na na Kathy, next time you visit your son't home, you are going to visit both Jim and me, just not Jim's house. Well, I can't promise such a grand garden but i'll try and make it worth your drive :)

Indu, thanks for posting the pictures! I always enjoy looking at Jim's many flowering plants and vines as well as the way he's constructed and arranged his flower beds and garden structures.

Patty-cakes, as you probably already gathered Jim lives in the Houston area.

Thanks, Indu. And thank you all. We always enjoy our visits with Indu, and of course she failed to mention that she brought me a 'Maggie' rose.
