Still gardening at 89

This wonderful story was posted on the Texas Forum and there's so much y'all would love I've linked it here for you.

When I'm 89, I want visitors to find me working in the garden too.

Thanks calam, I'm glad you enjoy our gardening style down here in Texas. I remember your master gardener's tour from a few weeks ago and that your gardening style seemed very different to them. Since you love garden junk, you'll love Texas and find lots of great ideas here too.

I've been following both yours and slowmedown's amazing projects for some time now. Next week I'm planning to start posting progress pics on my first mosaic which is also a garden junk project. It's small, but an interesting project for me so I'm excited to get started.

Enjoy your visit to Texas!

BTW, it's hot here so be prepared.
