Welcome! As "Annie in Austin" I blog about gardening in Austin, TX with occasional looks back at our former gardens in Illinois. My husband Philo & I also make videos - some use garden images as background for my original songs, some capture Austin events & sometimes we share videos of birds in our garden.
Come talk about gardens, movies, music, genealogy and Austin at the Transplantable Rose and listen to my original songs on YouTube. For an overview read Three Gardens, Twenty Years. Unless noted, these words and photos are my copyrighted work.
Philo took this photo of the large statue of musician Stevie Ray Vaughan on the South side of Ladybird Lake [the new name for Town Lake]. If you reuse the photo - give credit to this blog. The area is called Auditorium Shores Park. Practically everyone gets their photo taken with Stevie - it's a favorite with marathoners after the run.
