This is on my mind...show and tell


   Captured on a recent trip down the Natchez Trail, this pic reminds me of my love of secret gardens. How can I create one in my own back yard? I dream of incorporating berry bushes, fruit and nut trees, and veggies into a xeriscape of what is now a big expanse of thirsty green lawn. UPDATE: It has since come to my attention that maybe permaculture is a more appropriate word for what I am shooting for with our yard. Permaculture: my favorite new word.

   Thanks to SouleMama and down---to---earth for inviting me into a new concept of Friday photo sharing that one calls "{this moment}" and the latter "This is on my mind..." Above is my pic and what I hope it inspires me to do. Join me in leaving a link to your moment of show n tell here, on SouleMama or on down---to---earth. TGIF!

Thanks for taking time to visit my blog. It's always wonderful to meet new friends especially through Rhonda's blog.

Isn't this sharing of photos a great idea?!

I love secret gardens and lush mixed planting too. Good luck.
I hadn't heard of Xeriscaping, but then again, I've no shortage of rain or moisture in the soil here in Ireland!

@the This is on my mind visitors, I agree, Rhonda has a great idea! Though we don't water our lawn, I'm considering xeriscaping for the concept: replacing lawn with other plants. In our case, instead of succulents, I dream of replacing our lawn with mostly native food-producing trees/bushes/plants.
