An Austin Garden: Margie McClurg

We should expect winter weather mid-February, but somehow I expect to see sunshine, not ponds from the record rain we experienced this week. Poor me, I know. Well, it's more fun to look at sunnier garden photos, so I give you my last garden from the 2018 Garden Blogger's Fling in Austin, Texas, that of Margie McClurg.

The garden started about 12 years ago after the owners took a trip to Butchart Gardens and were inspired to re-create the beauty they experienced there (with plants that do well in Texas). After hiring Jackson Broussard, the owner and designer at Sprout Landscape design, to make it all come together, the end result feels like a secret garden, a slice of the Mediterranean hidden in Austin.
