Thriving Plants When You Live In The Botanical ‘Hole Of Death’

by Texas Homesteader ~

I’ve said it before and I can’t say it enough.  I love it here!  I love living in the country and the small-town feel.  We’ve made good friends and feel a true sense of community here.  And there’s that old 1800’s Barn that just speaks to my heart!  My life here is perfect in all ways except one. I struggle to get plants, trees or shrubs to live in our yard!!  Apparently we built our home right in the middle of the Botanical Hole of Death.

A short list of some beautiful yet very hardy plants I've been able to get to thrive in our Botanical Hole Of Death. #TaylorMadeHomestead

Recently I was chatting with a friend about those little red plastic coffee containers.  I love them and use them often for storing various things when we’ve consumed all the coffee from them.  I use them to store short-term quantities of chicken feed, for my gardening things, as a compost container to collect items destined for the *compost tumbler, etc. 

But after a while you’re run out of things to do with them.  I sadly told RancherMan to just go ahead and start putting them in the recycling bin, there was no other use I needed them for.  But in chatting with a friend she said she uses them for pots on her porch. Humm…. 

She pulls a plastic coffee can out of the recycling and when she's through? I LOVE this planter! Quick. Easy. CUTE! #TexasHomesteader

Wordless Wednesday: Spring is HERE!

by Tammy Taylor

I love these beautiful purple flowers, they bloom all by themselves in early spring. Our youngest used to call them 'Bunny Flowers' because they look like a bunny.  Some might just call them a weed, but I think beauty is where you look for it. #TexasHomesteader

Some might just call them a weed, but I think beauty is where you look for it. Look for beauty in YOUR world today!

Wordless Wednesday: ‘Bunny Flowers’

by Tammy Taylor

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: Henbit weed or cute bunny flower? It's all in your perception, folks. Look for the fascinating things in your life today! #TexasHomesteader

When our youngest daughter was a toddler she used to love the late-winter weed henbit because to her it looked like a bunny rabbit, hence the name ‘Bunny Flower’. Some may just see a weed, others see something fascinating. It’s all in your perception, folks. Look for the fascinating things in your life today!
