Bouquet of Inland Sea Oats

Inland Sea Oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) seed freely if left through the winter. I've got more than enough of them so I decided, this year, to make a bouquet. The bunch looks just as fresh today as it did three months ago.

Rainbow Garden Club Meeting

This past Sunday I hosted a meeting for The Rainbow Garden Club of Dallas.  Our speaker was Janet K. Smith who spoke on bat houses. She encouraged us all to erect bat houses to combat mosquitoes and other unfriendly insects, which we all agreed is a much better remedy than harmful pesticides. my neighbor I and are planning on putting a couple of them up soon.

If you'd like to buy one Janet's bat houses, they will soon be available at The Petropolitan.
