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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

There's been more than enough talk of Pecans at the Transplantable Rose so I posted the Pie over here. Making a pie with our own pecans was quite thrilling for a couple of Thanksgiving garden geeks like Philo and Annie in Austin!
We can't grow cranberries, but added a few Meyer's Lemons from our small tree to the store-bagged kind for Lemon-cranberry relish.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Philo. My, that pie looks delicious!

Annie, I had to explore tonight. I was delighted to find this blog of yours... what a TREAT to be able to pick your own pecans for your own pecan pie! Wow! If it was as good as it looks, it had to be Wonderfully delicious! :-)

Hello Shady - that was the first pecan crop we ever saw and don't know when we'll see another one. The tree is taking this year off so back to the store for 2008.
Thank you for exploring and commenting!
