If you would like to know the history of any Texas woman, ask her about her bulbs. You will learn about her family, her neighbors, her church friends, and possibly about some of her adventures and travels.

“These Irises are from my Great Aunt Thelma, these Bare Naked Ladies are from my mom’s next door neighbor when she lived in Oak Cliff, the Amaryllises are from the organist from the church where I was married, my husband and I dug up these Lilies as newly weds from an abandoned house we found driving the back roads in East Texas…”

Season after season the flowers bless our springs, and from time to time we dig, divide and our own stories get planted into the next generation of Texas gardens.

Please let me know what you think
