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.

Thanksgiving Cactus

Thanksgiving Cactus,AnnieinaustinHappy Thanksgiving to everyone - hope you're ready for the day!

The Thanksgiving cactus are in different stages of readiness - one in full bloom, two budded, and one with no hint of possible flowers.

Loaves of whole wheat, and artisan white and cornbread are done - ready for baking is a batch of the 'No Knead Bread' developed by Jim Lahey of the Sullivan Street Bakery, which has an 18-hour rising time. The New York Times published the recipe back in fall 2006.

It's 11 AM and the outside temperature is 68°F...time to turn the oven on to 450°F.
Meyer's Lemons, Annieinaustin
Tomorrow I'll throw a couple of these Meyer's Lemons in the food processor with cranberries & a couple of tablespoons of Southern Comfort - love that Cranberry relish.

Happy Thanksgiving, Annie! I hope it didn't get too hot in your kitchen, and you had plenty of time to relax in between all that cooking! :D
