Thank you to Caroline, Mathew, Sebastian and Lucas for allowing us to show off your award-winning landscape project. David walked-and-talked with visitors about our approach to this design, which was completed winter '06/spring '07. (Keith and his Appealing Gardens crew completed the installation in spring '07.) He met several new native plant enthusiasts and a few long-time customers who came out to support our ongoing effort to restore Texas. Sage and I stopped by for an hour or so. She met Betsy F. of NPSOT; Diane and Mike M. (design clients); Martha Ann and Charlie W. (design/install clients and last year's award-winners); and dozens of new faces. It was a big day for such a little girl.
