I wish I could share photos of my garden with you today but I haven't seen it for over 3 weeks! I wonder how it is doing on its 'ownyo'. However, I do have a few things to share and will enjoy reading about my friend's gardens on this August Bloom Day thanks to Carol at Maydreams.

As usual I brought along some of my garden on this camping trip to the Sawtooths in Idaho. The bamboo planter with 3 haworthia. How they love the cool evenings. Cut sprigs of basil put into a jar of water over 3 weeks ago have rooted and still are looking healthy. No moldy old leaves like happens at home.
Added to my traveling garden a ceramic pot of wayside grasses. I just took a fancy to this rather peculiar shaped, wobbly vase in a thrift shop and the $3 price tag won me over. I knew the colors would go very well with dried grasses and I know there will be plenty of that in Texas this year.


  1. You taking some garden, on the road. That doesn't surprise. Love all of them.
    You always find the neatest things, at garage sales and thrift shops.
    Yes, there is a lot of dry grass, here in Texas. And, heat. But, at least it's not as bad as last year.
    Have a great time.

  2. I love this collection Jenny, what a great way to travel!

  3. Great!
    I love the idea of plants taking vacations!
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Yes, you're traveling with style, even in a camper. Love it!
